Handmade Nation comes to Edmonton Saturday July 18th!

 

Make It Productions is thrilled to present the premier screening of Handmade Nation at the Trans Alta Arts Barn!

www.handmadenationmovie.com

Here is some information on the documentary:

Faythe Levine traveled 19,000 miles to document what has emerged as a marriage between historical technique, punk culture, and the D.I.Y. ethos. For HANDMADE NATION she and Cortney Heimerl have selected 24 makers and 5 essayists who work within different media and have different methodologies to provide a microcosm of the crafting community. Participants in this community share ideas and encouragement through websites, blogs, boutiques, galleries, and craft fairs. Together they have forged a new economy and lifestyle based on creativity, determination, and networking.

Twenty-four artists from Olympia, Washington to Providence, Rhode Island, and everywhere in between show their work and discuss their lives. Texts by Andrew Wagner of American Craft magazine, Garth Johnson of ExtremeCraft.com, Callie Janoff of the Church of Craft, Betsy Greer of Craftivism.com, and Susan Beal, author of Super Crafty, supply a critical view of the tight-knit community where ethics can overlap with creativity and art with community. Handmade Nation features photographs of the makers, their work environment, their process, their work, and discussions of how they got their start and what motivates them. Handmade Nation is a fascinating book for those who are a part of the emerging movement or just interested in sampling its wares.

 Heres how you can get involved in this exciting opportunity:

 Become an exhibitor at our one day Make It sale the day of the screening

From 10am to 5pm we will have a handmade market featuring 30 local designers in the lobby of the Arts Barn open to the public.

 Price for a 5 by 5 spot is $100 (+GST)

Price for an 8 by 5 spot is $150 (+GST)

Includes electricity, a chair and 2 free tickets to the screening at 8pm

Load in time will be at 8am

Table rental is $10

Sponsor the screening of Handmade Nation

Have your logo placed on all our press and marketing material. This is a great way to get your brand out there and create public recognition. We are planning to do a ton of media promotion for the screening so this is an amazing opportunity!

Price for sponsorship is $95 (+GST)

If you are interested in becoming an exhibitor or a sponsor please let me know as soon as possible and I will send you a PayPal invoice. If you would like to pay by cheque that can also be arranged.

Tickets for the film will go on sale next week. They are $12 and can be purchased online.

Thank you so much everyone and we are very excited to work with you!

Jenna & Chandler

Where: Alberta Aviation Hanger: 11410 Kingsway Avenue

The birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, and you have the overwhelming urge to get out of the house and find some fabulous new fashions for the home, your family, the dog and most importantly yourself! Instead of heading to a generic, overcrowded mall why not experience a shopping event that will entice all your senses. If you want to support over 100 of Canadas brightest designers and artisans Spring Stop & Shop is the place to be this May 22nd-24th. Find everything from fashion accessories, clothing, home dcor, art, gourmet goodies and many other one-of-a-kind handmade items.

What sets Stop & Shop apart from a typical granny craft show is the ambiance and vibe created through music spun by top local DJs and the hip, urban atmosphere of the venue. There will also be no dollies, beeswax candles or silk flower arrangements in sight! All your spring shopping needs are taken care of from lovely gifts to perfect self indulgences. Spring Stop & Shop will have the feeling of a modern, vibrant European artisan market to satisfy anyone who enjoys style, flare and everything fabulous!

This is the 5th installment for producers Ally Ng and Jenna Herbut and they promise that Spring Stop & Shop at the Alberta Aviation Hanger will be the best yet!

Stop, Shop & Support!
