Handmade Nation

Etsy Houston will be assisting this Saturday evening with some very crafty events! First, there will be a reception from 6-7 pm and then a screening of the documentary, Handmade Nation, from 7-8 pm at the Lawndale Art Center:
"Handmade Nation is a documentary about the new wave of art, craft and design that is capturing the attention of the nation. Director, author, artist and curator Faythe Levine traveled to 15 cities and covered more than 19,000 miles to interview artists, crafters, makers, curators and community members for her feature film debut..."
At 8:15 pm at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Jenine Bressner, one of the artists featured in Handmade Nation, will give a gallery talk about her new exhibition at HCCC, Inverted Harmony: A Handmade Environment.

Come early to enjoy a beer from St. Arnold Brewing Company and to make a cool Valentine's Day paper craft with us Etsy Houston gals! Handmade Nation books will be for sale from Domy Books as well.
