Sydney Brown Owls are the Grooviest Craft Gals in Town, who love all crafts and believe in sharing the crafty love. If you have been looking for a bunch of gals to craft with, a bunch of gals who know there is no such thing as too much yarn/fabric/paper, then my friend, you may have just stumbled on Nirvana!

Gocco Workshop coming up!

On the 27th of February we will be having an exiting Gocco workshop in Lane Cove.

We will  have a set of a screen and some bulbs for everyone. So you can print your own design on  postcard size cards or paper. We will show you how to use the Gocco machine for printing and how to use the screens like a mini silk screen, so you can even reuse the screen at home without the need of a Gocco machine.

The last Gocco workshop was very popular and spots are limited to 15 People, so you better get in quick. To RSVP for this workshop you will have to purchase a spot in the workshop. We have set up an etsy shop to do this:

You need to RSVP no later than the 15th of February to give us enough time to order the screens and bulbs!
Costs are $ 32  this is for a screen and some bulbs, inks, some basic paper and venue hire.
We will have to have at least 10 bookings to run this workshop.

We will post some more information closer to the date, giving you a little introduction and letting you know what to bring and how to prepare your artwork.

If you don't know what a Gocco is, have a look here:
