Anyone in LA want to learn to weave? On a really big loom?

A Call for Artists/Craftspeople: Weaving Opportunity

I have constructed a gigantic loom in my Project Space in Lincoln Heights, workspace.
The warp spans the entire length of the front room, using the walls for tension and support.

I am hoping that people will bring their own materials, everything from yarn to old clothing, bed sheets, fiber, old bathing suits, plastic bags, and anything else that can be cut into strips and stuck into this very simple apparatus.

It will only take 5 minutes for me to teach you how to weave, and the more the merrier. You can weave one inch, or more, it's up to you.
