Canberra Brown Owls: Burnt Flowers


This month we're going to have a go at burning flowers!

Burnt flowers can be used for brooches or headbands or clips or to embellish just about anything... they're super easy and heaps of fun!

Most of these tutes use organza, but you can use just about any polyester-type material... anything that will burn basically! Just not cotton or silk - they will just burn right up (don't ask how we know...).

So you'll need to bring a bit of material, a couple of beads or buttons, something to attach the finished flower to (brooch-back, headband, bag), thread and needles and a candle... then get ready to burn it up! As always, you can always just bring along you own project instead - we just love to see you!

This month's meet is Sunday 10 April from 2 to 4 pm, at the Downer Community Centre. Please RSVP in the comments. $5 for hall hire please and a plate to share for afternoon tea if you wish.
