Southside Owls ~ Thursday 13th October ~ GOCCO!


We are going to do a GOCCO demo this month at Southside Brown Owls!

I first saw a gocco in action when Pip did a demo at Fitzroy Brown Owls in 2009 and was instantly hooked. I bought a gocco on ebay about a week later where it has dutifully sat in it's box since. That is until last weekend when Jess, fellow Southside Owl and a gocco veteran, gave me the low down. It's so easy and so much fun. Mine is going to get such a workout now that I've dusted off the box.

Jess and I will be doing a demo on how to use gocco, and everyone will get to have a go at printing!

We will have two goccos and a few different screens/designs you can print from on the night, including one of Jess's sweet illustrations and the bunting above (would make a great christmas card!)

Date: Thursday 13th October
Time: 7:30pm
Venue: Miss Jackson, 2/19 Grey Street St. Kilda (through the big rusty gate)
Close to the #16, #96 and #122 trams, and parking below

What to bring:
We will have some papery things you can use to print on, but it would be a good idea to bring along some of your own as well. Here are some ideas:
* blank cards
* blank postcards
* envelopes
* paper bags
* lolly bags
* gift bags
* noodle boxes
* stickers
* front cover of notebooks e.g. moleskine
* old book pages

The gocco print size is B6 (125mm x 176mm) so make sure your papery things are at least that big to fit the image on, and not too much bigger that A5 (148mm x 210mm) so they fit in the gocco.

And bring along a BYO project as well to keep your hands busy in between printing!!

Sweeties: We will have tea, wine and baked goodies, feel free to bring something along if you would like to show off your baking skills!

RSVP: In the comments below if you'd like to come along! Please do!!

If you have any questions feel free to email or tweet me.

See you all next week!!
