Canberra Brown Owls Freezer Paper stencils

Charger

It's stencil time again!

*Please note this month's meeting is on SUNDAY, not Saturday. The DCC have double booked us so we have had to change to Sunday 23 October.

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
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 us 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.

Check out out results last time... 2009
And try using the image function to search Google for possible stencil images too.


Look forward to seeing you there - Sunday 23 October at 2.00pm at the Downer Community Centre. Leave your RSVP or any questions in the comments, and let us know if you need supplies. Don't forget - $5 for the room hire and a plate of something yummy to share if you're so inclined!
