Sydney Owls Meeting This Wednesday

Hello Lovely Sydney Owls

We have a meeting on this Wednesday. All owls are welcome - even if you are new come along and join the fun.

Details:
Wednesday 7th April 7pm - 10pm
Lane Cove Centrehouse, Longueville Rd Lane Cove
Cost $5 each for the room rental. Also bring a coffee mug if you want a cuppa.
we are in a new room this week - the pottery room which is down the side underneath our normal room.

This time we are exploring the world of "ephemera"
According to Wikipedia Ephemera is transitory written and printed matter not intended to be retained or preserved.
If the word ephemera scares you or is a pain to spell just think of it as "collage with old stuff".

Everyone should bring a base item to do their collage on like plain notebooks, kraft envelopes, a blank canvas. We should also bring supplies to share (so we don't need to double up too much) including some sort of glue, maybe thread and needle for sewing on lace or hand embellishing, scissors, cuttting tools, rubber stamps, etc...

Then we need some "old materials" - people are bringing things like old sheet music and national geographic magazines that we cut up and share. Other ideas would be interesting paper, postcards, pamphlets, tickets, maps and lace or interesting fabrics.

this should be fun - see you there!!!!
