At last. We sign our new lease today!

And this, ladies and gents, is where we will reside. Not quite Gowanus, not quite Park Slope. Sun shining in on all our (and your) pretty little faces, slaving away over looms. It’s a lovely thought, no?

Well, hurry up. Come hang out with us! 505 Carroll St (between 3rd + 4th Ave)

Nice and cozy inside. And you can’t tell but…summer is right around the corner.

It’s been strange planning our Summer Camp for 2010 while it snows, blizzards, freezes. Our brochure is finally here, though! Just in time. : )

Sorry for the absense. We are in the midst of many many things… new schedules, new classes, new website and materials, andddd… MOVING! We’ve been searching far and wide for the perfect location and we think we have found it. So that I do not jinx it, I won’t say where yet or post any pictures of it.. Soon!

New, fun, posts soon — promise.

Last Saturday we set up shop at the 3rd Ward holiday fair. We gave some free demos, and started to introduce a pending product line (!) The crowd was great, we were set up directly in front of the band (and panda), and $1 colt 45’s! Was a blur and lots of fun.

We’ll be having some weaving workshops held at 3rd Ward in the coming months, so check back for that (or on the 3rd Ward site)

Also… big big news coming for the new year but I dont want to reveal it just yet. Stay tuned…

 

After many failed attempts to properly upload the “making of” video for the MetaLoom on YouTube, we just have to accept the copyright infringment laws. So, I’ll try right here instead. Hope you all enjoy jerky, handheld photography. : )

The MetaLoom came down today for the winter and repairs. After a long winter of exposure to children and the elements, we enlisted some new people to help us take it down this time. Gerard Nadeau, the MetaLoom designer, ventured back to NYC; our wonderful summer interns, Kawan and Tyrence, returned; and Liesl Hazelton, a very talented Australian textile artist who is traveling the world on scholarship, was nice enough to take some of the load off us. She’ll be joining us for the next two weeks and hopefully in 2010!

Tali Weinberg, textile artist and grad-student at NYU, also came by to help. She wrote a wonderful blog entry about the MetaLoom and we hope to collaborate with her in installing it at a conference on fashion and textiles at NYU in late January. We’re so happy to be working with people who have new visions for textiles and inspiring perspectives on their role in our world. Thanks, Tali : )

So check back here or the website for MetaLoom updates — we are looking forward to a busy 2010.
