Adelaide - Wooden Brooches with Ruth

We seem to be on a bit of a brooch theme these days! But hey you can never have enough. This week Ruth has offered to teach us all how to make these beautiful wooden brooches!

When: Wednesday Mar 24th 7pm til 9:30pm
Where: Box Factory - Adelaide Community Centre, 59 Regent St South Adelaide
Cost: $2 donation to the Box Factory plus $4 for a kit.
Numbers: We have room for 25 Owls - the first 25 to RSVP are IN!

Kits are $4 and will contain wooden shape & brooch back, bit of super glue and the turps

Ruth has kindly offered to supply:

  • Super Glue
  • turps
  • pastels to apply colour
  • sealer
All you need to bring is:
  • A small photocopy (slightly larger than a 50c) of an image that you like. Note - the image MUST be photocopied on a carbon photocopier (it cant be laserjet printer as it contains no carbon and thus wont work!)
  • a little paintbrush
  • a lead pencil
  • a fine felt tip pen in black (we will have a few spare on hand)
If you are stuck for an image or not sure if the one you have is from a carbon photo copier we will have some for you to pick from.

You need to comment ONLY once when you RSVP with your name and initial (eg Cherry G! Kit Please). Please only RSVP for one person on your comment to keep it fair.

See you on Wednesday!

Ruth, Tracey, Cathy & Cherry

This sounds great. Count me in for the wooden brooches. I suspect I don't have a carbon photo copier - so I'll probably need a picture too.

I can't wait - I haven't been to Brown Owls in ages!

Please count me in, it will be my first meeting :) My name is Diana H.

Are all photocopiers carbon photocopiers? Is there an easy way to tell??

I'm really looking forward to it!

Hi there. I'll be there, but you'll need to be ready for someone new to Brown Owls with plenty of crafty desire, but little skill or experience!!

I also don't have access to a carbon photocopier so if I could get an image that would be great too.
Looking forward to it!

I would love to do this craft, but am a recent member of the Mitchem brown owls. Would I be allowed to attend the city one?

I will be there! It has been a while, but I'm looking forward to it.
I would like a kit too please, and I will need a pic as no access to said photocopier here.

Looking forward to it,

So sorry for the late notice, but I won't be able to make it as something has come up.
