STO 12: Parts and Crafts


Parts and Crafts is located in Somerville, Massachusetts at 577 Somerville Avenue. The Parts and Crafts collective is a group of thinkers, teachers, and tinkerers in the Boston area who are interested in helping people build, think, create, succeed, fail, and learn. They run hands-on creative arts, science, and engineering programs for kids and adults to help people learn and do and make things.


Directed, edited, and scored by Mark Robinson.
Thanks to Katie Gradowski and Will Macfarlane.
Filmed on September 10, 2014.
Premiered on January 19, 2015.

This is the 12th and final episode of STO, a short-film miniseries focused on unique and interesting interior spaces, almost always retail stores.

Brief documentary films. Movie trailers for retail stores. One-and-a-half-minute TV commercials that won’t air on television. You may also subscribe to STO as a video podcast via our handy-dandy podcasting partner.

MARK ROBINSON is a hero of American underground and D.I.Y. culture. Not only is he the founder and operator of the legendary TEENBEAT RECORDS (they recently released the SOMERVILLE SPEAKOUT CD), but he was also a member of bands that I love quite a bit, including UNREST and FLIN FLON. Currently living in the local burg of Cambridge, MA, he performs in the duo COTTON CANDY with his wife Evelyn Hurley, among other uses of his time. All text in bold above by Mark Robinson.
