Film screening at STAR

So excited to tell you all that after a BIG group effort in Benda's we have secured the craft doco "Making it Handmade" to be shown at Star cinema on Sunday the 12th of December. I will let you know the time when we have locked it in. But pencil it in now! well worth a look. Shown at the Melbourne international film Festival this year, I have had countless customers tell me of the surprising, funny, sometimes rude but utterly free and inspiring film that it was. the film maker Anna will be joining us for the day at the Star cinema and will answer questions after the screening. What a buzz. Stay tuned to the blog for more details as they come to hand.

Making it Handmade - by Anna Brownfield
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
