Textile Consultant

I answered a Craigslist ad today and I’ve somehow been hired as a Textile Consultant (that’s what I’m calling myself) for some Hollywood folk making an art project for Burning Man. It’s some sort of relaxation area involving a couch and some giant “leaves” to keep it shady. And I think it’s all made out of PVC pipes and cloth.

I only heard about this because it was forwarded to one of the local SCA lists because they were looking for a weaving tutor (which is why I applied). I’ve talked with the artists about it and I’m not sure that they really need a weaver, but they said they’d like me to come by and help them figure out what to do anyway (since I’m an expert and all… πŸ˜‰ )

I’m sure it’ll be good for some laughs, and apparently they have a bunch of cash they don’t need since they’re going to pay me for this. Though, I do have to sit in rush-hour traffic for probably the next hour…
