Making it Handmade : market + film!

Making it Handmade, the documentary is screening again THIS Saturday (4th Sept) after a sellout screening at the 2010 MIFF.

Screenings are at 2pm and 4pm.

The lovelies from Craft Cartel have organised a craft market at the same time (I will be there selling my crafty bits) .. the market starts at 2pm. 

You can buy film tickets here 
And a bit about the film here:

Think craft is for grannies? Think again.

A seditious and subversive subculture is gaining momentum in Melbourne. But rather than wielding megaphones and placards, they’re cross-stitching slogans on hurricane wire and constructing plush female genitalia from craft supplies.

Following four local women who’ve taken a seemingly staid past-time and injected it with a youthful, modern aesthetic, filmmaker Anna Brownfield shows a side of craft more closely aligned with punk DIY culture than with Martha Stewart and ‘home sweet home’ tapestries.

“I wanted to show that craft was no longer daggy but had moved into a new era and was being reclaimed by women who had been brought up as feminists.” – filmmaker Anna Brownfield
