Open Windows Cooperative, a community print shop, bindery and collaboration space in the Bayview is hosting a public weaving project at sites around our neighborhood throughout the month of May, featuring local artists Kirstyn Hom and Ava Sayaka Rosen.  Their hand-built loom will travel on casters to pressure points around the transit corridor of Third Avenue.  We invite friends and passersby to contribute old clothes and leftover fabric  —material with stories to tell— to recycle into the rag rug we will take turns weaving together.

The ancient art of hand weaving maintains relevance and power as a form of storytelling as well as manufacturing. The use of traditional tools and a more tactile process soothes us in an increasingly mechanized age.  Our hope is that by weaving together, we will facilitate a more immediate and intuitive dialogue with our community.
