Brunswick Brown Owls celebrate the festival ALL HALLOWS EVE this Wednesday! We will celebrate with carving a big old pumpkin. Never done it before? Me neither, but don’t worry, our champion pumpkin carver Allanagh will be sharing her experience and skills (I'll share my lino cutting tools with you).
Come and join us, Wednesday 23rd October at 7pm at the Sporting Club, Weston St, Brunswick, Victoria for a Halloween pumpkin carving fiesta!
You'll need to pick up a pumpkin from a local grocer.
We may not live in the northern hemisphere, and we’re not preparing for the long winter ahead, but we love to celebrate all sorts of festivals!
It's not just about American teen horror films, thankfully.

Ok folks, the time to get your scare on is fast approaching! If you want to carve a pumpkin you should get your thinking cap on because as the old saying goes, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
From experience, it takes a lot longer than most people realise, so if possible, have your pumpkin already hollowed out (this can take between half to 1.5hrs depending on the size of your pumpkin).
The simplest designs are often the most successful, so you might want to print out a design. A good investment is a set of lino cutting tools with which to carve, is at http://www.silkcutlino.ashop.com.au/ and they have them with free delivery.

If you’re not into pumpkins or sharp knives, feel free to bring your own crafty project and carry on with that, there will be lots happening in the fine Ladies Lounge.
We’d love you to come and say HIDEE HI to the Brunswick Brown Owls! If you can’t make it, we’ll pop up photos of the evening on our Brunswick Brown Owls Facebook page so you can join in the fun too. We have over 170 members (no spambots luckily!), and you can be a part of our crafty community too! Come along and learn some new skills with us!
The Sporting Club still has delicious tapas and discounted cider jugs! Tasty.
Bring your friends! We like your friends! We like you!
