Faythe Levine, video, 20 mins, 2008

We are very excited to welcome a wonderful member of the midwest craft community! Faythe Levine is a filmmaker, author, independent curator and creative director who is currently documenting the rise of DIY and the new wave of art, craft and design in the United States. The heart of this new wave of creativity is the community, which is equally influenced by traditional handiwork, modern aesthetics, politics, feminism and art. More information at

Join us this program where we will see a 20 minute sneak preview from a work in progress from the feature film to be released in 2009. After the screening we will hear from Faythe about her thoughts on craft, community, and the nature of DIY. Crafters, artists, filmmakers, labor artists and the general public are all encouraged to attend!

And don't forget to buy the book (with a contribution from yours truly) from your local independent bookseller this fall!
