02 Sep ‘Stitched Stories’ Documentary Film Preview
Where: Fine Cell Work Pop-Up Shop, 5 Grosvenor St, London, W1K 4DJ
I’m a bit nervous to mention this but I’m in a 20 minute documentary on the power of craft *gulp*. The filmmaker Rachel Tavenor asked me about a year ago now to be in her short film for her Masters Degree final project. It’s a documentary of my story of getting in to craftivism and the story of Neil an ex-prisoner who got into craft through working with Fine Cell Work while in prison.
Again, it sounded like a great way to spare the power of craftivism with a wider audience, although I squirmed a bit thinking about a film camera in my face but then said “sure”. I’ve seen the final edit and Neil’s story is so powerful it’s really worth watching. I hope I come across OK :s As you know, I’m not very photogenic and get nervous around cameras plus I was very honest with Rachel during the filming process which now makes me embarrassed but hopefully it will encourage people to pick up craftivism and see that generic rx online pharmacy anyone can do it! 🙂
There is a preview film screening of the film at Fine Cell Work pop up shop in Mayfair as part of London Design Festival (!) on 20th Sept and open to all. Please RSVP due to limited number of seats.Written by Sarah Corbett
