Canberra Brown Owls - 23 August

Freezing? Well come along to the next Canberra Brown Owls meet on Sunday 23 August, where we'll be tackling freezer paper stencils!


Charger



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
  • $6 for the room hire.

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 me know if the comments if you want a the '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.

I will be there with the two mini owlettes in tow. I woudl love to the kit please. Michelle - I'm also happy to buy a kit from last month as well.
I have also seen a great tutorial using craft paper punches with freezer paper, so I will find that and bring it and bring the punches that I have (I think my exacto knife skills could be dangerous!)
