Canberra owls carve it up in July

Oh what fun we'll have this month! We're going to try our hands at stamp carving. There are a myriad of tutorials out there - and here are just a few:

The hard bit is going to be choosing what design you want to make! Keep in mind it's a bit like stencil making - you want to start with a pretty simple design that's easy to cut around.

We've got two sets of carving tools - but we could use a couple of extra if anyone has any. You can pick them up at craft shops for about $15 if you're really keen.

If you would like a kit containing two erasers and a blank card let us know on the rsvp of the Brown Owls post. You'll need $3 for the kit and use of the stamps and carving tools, or just $1.50 if you want to use the stamps and carving tools. Or you can bring your own!

The next meeting is on 25 July at the Downer Community Centre at 2.00pm. Don't forget your $6 for room hire and any nibbles you might want to bring. Can't wait to see you!

Naomi, Bron, George and Michelle.

I'll be there (for the first hour or so) and I'd love a kit if I'm not too late. I have some lino carving tools that I'll bring along, in case they are of any use.

Hello Wonderful Ladies!
I can't make it this month due to being over committed. (Or I wonder if that's I should be committed!)
I hope you have a most wonderful day!
