Hi ya’ll. Over here in the West we walk to our own drum beat. *Cough* which means that the end of August Brown Owls meet is now the first week in September. I could give you excuses like SWINE FLU but you know, I won’t.

Anywho. So we’re going to do an early September meet and we’re taking a leaf out of the Canberra owls and doing a freezer paper stenciling afternoon (thanks Canberra for the content!). The details:

Brown Owls Perth
Saturday 5 September, 2 to 4pm
Baby Goose, 945 Beaufort Street, Inglewood WA 6052, see map below
RSVP by leaving a comment.
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 plastic lid or some kind of paint palette
  • $2 for the room hire.

$3 will get you freezer paper, and access to fabric medium, paint (black, white, red, blue and yellow) and brushes.

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.

    Well, this Canberra Brown Owl reckons you'll all have a fabulous time! Make sure you all bring a cutting mat – makes it so much easier! (and less ouchy)

    Hi ladies – sorry to be a pain, I am now not 100% sure if I can make it due to small *cough* double-booking issues. It helps if you write EVERYTHING that you are doing in your diary, not just SOME of the things…So, perhaps count me out and if I can still make it I'll just rock up with BYO craft instead. K :)
