Handmade Nation comes to the Northwest, to MCC!


The Handmade Nation lovefest continues on to the Northern reaches, to Portland Oregon, to the fabulously on-the-ball Museum of Contemporary Craft – April 3-5.  I’m thrilled to meet up again with Faythe Levine, director of “Handmade Nation”, who has been traveling the world sharing this wonderful film!  Buy tickets ahead of time off the museum’s website, as it looks to be selling out!  I’ll be leading a participatory, interactive, hands-on crochet event on Sunday at 4pm, after the film and a great talk, so come and make.  You’ll be contributing to my latest project, which I will be posting about pretty soon.  Viva the Hand!

These images are from crochet parties to support the creation of The Silvering Path.  The event at MCC will be in support of my newest project, a temporary public art installation called Mater Matrix Mother and Medium sponsored by Seattle Public Utilities, I’ll soon be talking more about this….
