As I mentioned before, I've got a fair bit of blogging to catch up with! The screening of Handmade Nation was excellent last Wednesday. (Poster above by hellojenuine) I felt that I really connected with a lot of the folks interviewed in the film- not only sharing a love for the DIY ethic, but also the fantastic community that seemed to be the centre of those who's work the film documented.
One of the things which I really enjoy about visual arts occassions- whether they be exhibition openings, craft sales or indeed film screenings- is the opportunity to meet up with other creatives, from old friends to new faces.
The director of the film, Faythe Levine even gave us a shout-out for our Etsy Craft Party- which Jen and I have been working so hard to prepare for. We've got a few DIY mini projects for you to try out, while you grab a cuppa, some Etsy birthday cake and have a natter. If you've got your own craft projects you'd like to bring along to keep you busy then we'd love to see them too. Check out the Dundee Jamboree Blog for more information- RSVP via our Facebook event or just come along to the DCA this Friday the 18th of June at 7.30pm. It's free!
