Canberra - 24 October - go go gocco

Hello Owls!

This month is 'Goctober' in Canberra, as the lovely Michelle and Jo have offered to bring along their Gocco machine to our next meet, on Sunday October 24th!

For anyone wanting to try their hand at making their own Gocco prints the girls will have kits available for $15 - this will cover the costs of bulbs and one screen each (which is enough to print one design on either fabric or paper). From one inked screen you get about 4-5 decent post-card sized prints.

Please prepare the design you would like to make your Gocco print from in advance to bring along on the day - it needs to be postcard sized and either drawn with a carbon pen or photocopied on a toner copier. You will also need to bring along what ever you would like to print on to - paper/card or fabric are fine.

Orders for the necessary Gocco bits and pieces will have to be done this week to make sure we have everything in time for our meet, so if you would like to make your own Gocco prints you need to RSVP in the comments below with your request for a kit by this Thursday October 14th

Making the Gocco prints won't take very long, so please also bring along something else to work on too =) (seeing what my clever owly friends are crafting up is my favourite part!!)

If you would like to know more about Gocco there is a great overview here, and if you have any specific questions please let us know and we will pass them on to Michelle and Jo! =)

As usual we will be meeting from 1.30 pm to 4.30 pm at Downer Community Centre. Please bring along $6 for room hire, as well as $15 for your kit if you want to Gocco, and a small plate of something for afternoon tea if you would like.

Don't to forget to RSVP below by Thursday 14th October to order a kit if you would like to make your own Gocco print!

Can't wait to see you then! =)

Bron, Naomi, Michelle and George x

Thanks so much, Brown Owls, for such a lovely and inspiring afternoon. I even feel a little bit artistic with my golden dragonflies. Looking forward to next time.
