This post was made to the blog for silk screening
you can email http://www.freshpressed.com/ (vendor/retail) and ask some specifics. They have eco friendly paint options, 4C and wide variety of paints. They run workshops or you can bring your art and use their supplies. Probably not mention that you plan on teaching and just want their info. As for the table space they use an old fashion washing machine top area as their tabletop space so probably 4'X3" at max? Something that will hold the silkscreening frame size with some extra space around it which is sufficient enough to do T-shirt sized things.
Another place is Graphaids Inc., an art store in Culver City on La Cienega. http://www.graphaids.com/Stores.html 31020412121
Jose/Ramon has in-depth knowledge with lot of supplies. They've been there for over a decade and think they will be helpful.
Just a reminder that the first meeting of Specters of LA History & Site-specific Resurrections will be held this Saturday @ noon at The Public School. Here is a note from Zen, one of the class facilitators, about what will take place:
The first class will be an opportunity for us to meet each other, discuss our interests in LA lost communities, and plan out the future "site visits" to explore.
To begin with, I thought we could all look at two short articles by Mike Davis available here:
They are "Sunshine & the Open Shop" and "How Eden Lost its Garden"
I think it would be great to discuss this article from Third Text on Wednesday: From Communism to Commons
This text is a conversation between David Riff and Dmitry Vilensky (Chto delat?), and they take up a lot of themes that have emerged in discussions among those involved in Beyond the UC Strikes over the past several months.
I think this meeting is a good opportunity to re-start activity around these issues - with an eye toward more substantive considerations of cultural participation in the larger gatherings in Detroit and Oakland. On that score, future meetings might consider this text: Towards a theory of alter-globalism
Hope to see yall on Wed
it is the the dawn of time. the world is at war and we are both the bullets and the flesh. our people have found themselves cruelly thrown against the oppressive current of oppression. These waves have weakened our limbs, (as)salted our wounds and obliterated any hope for recovery. Our wills have become weak, and we are tired of this all-too-long struggle.
But today the hope that has eluded us throughout this never-ending era of persecution has manifested itself in the form of this manifesto. The injustice will end now. This manifesto will triumph over all we despise.
This post was made to the blog for Home Coffee Roasting
hello and thanks for showing interest in this course. it will be a two day class where day one consists of a brief presentation on coffee roasting and then free time where we will break up into groups and experiment with a number of different home roasting setups. by the end of the day we will have lots of coffee roasted and we will hopefully have a good working knowledge of the home roasting process. day two will consist of us brewing the coffee using a variety of coffee makers.
i will provide 5 different diy coffee roasting setups and we will order the beans as a group once we have a better idea how many people will be attending. i will also provide a vacuum pot, french press, and a manual drip, as well as a fancy grinder. if anyone has any other brewing devices you are encouraged to bring them in. i would be especially excited if anyone had an aeropress and/or a chemex.
just to be clear, day one is where all the roasting will take place.
Sample a variety of sushi styles of the past to bring to life the historical shifts and developments of Japan. Led by Yoko Isassi, this one-afternoon workshop and taste-shop will be an adventure for all the senses. Space is limited; Please RSVP from the class page.
(Rough draft written in only a few minutes! For sharing at the beginning of our workshop)
Everyone now wants to know how to remove themselves from social networks. It has become absolutely clear that our relationships to others are mere data points in the aggregation of marketing data. Political campaigns, the sale of commodities, the promotion of entertainment – this is the outcome of our expression of likes and affinities. And at what cost? The reward is obvious: we no longer have to tolerate advertisements for things for which we have no interest. Instead our social relations are saturated with public relations. But at least it is all interesting!
Unlike the old days, when we could invent online identities daily, our social networks today require fidelity between our physical self and our online self. The situation is unbearable.
Just a quick reminder that the second, "practice"-oriented installment of the Theory/Practice based workshop on the manifesto is happening TOMORROW at TPS at 1 PM. Join us (again)!
sorry folks - just wanted to see what this feature did!
