Studio Visit: Open Windows Cooperative
Open Windows Cooperative (OWC) was founded by Ava Sayaka Rosen of four eyes press and Alexandra Jane Williams of Triangle House. Open Windows’ mission is to be a safe space, community space and creative space. Located in the Bayview district of San Francisco, they offer letterpress and bookbinding facilities, and hold sacred space for ritual and contemplation. OWC is committed to open sharing of ideas, skills, and support.
I've wanted to collaborate on a project with Alexandra for ages now; ever since I sewed curtains for her enormous studio windows, I've been dreaming about this space and the magic that is made within. It's remarkable how organically the studio has morphed into a shared space and creative partnership- Ava and Alexandra have the kind of tranquil, inquisitive creative partnership that is simply a joy to observe. We recently spent a Sunday afternoon snacking on Pocky and pamplemousse LaCroix, taking photos in their airy, gorgeous studio and brainstorming a lunar calendar collaboration.
