Canberra Brown Owls: Spring means Stencilling!

October 13, 2012
It’s
stencil time again!

Come Spring we love to roll out the freezer paper stencilling. It’s always one
of our most popular meets!

You’ll need to bring:
  • a photocopy/printout of a
    design you want to stencil,
  • something you want to
    stencil on to (t-shirt, tea towel, fabric),
  • a pencil for tracing the
    design on to the freezer paper,
  • an exacto or paper cutting
    knife (and a cutting mat if you have one), and
  • a plastic lid or some kind
    of paint palette
For the princely sum of $3 we can provide you with a 50cm length of
freezer paper, and access to fabric medium, paint (black, white, red, blue and
yellow) and brushes. If you’re a quilter you may already have access to your
own freezer paper, or you can bring your own paints. You can buy a piece of
freezer paper for $1, or some fabric medium (turns regular paint into fabric
paint) for $1. Let us know if the comments if you want a ‘package’ or just
freezer paper.

Here are some great places to start looking for a stencil or for a bit of
information about the process. Best to try something simple to start with.

And try using the image function to search Google for possible stencil
images too. And don’t forget Pinterest – a great source of inspiration!

and let us know if you need supplies. Don’t forget – $5 for the room hire and a
