Hi, I'm Laura and I'm a big ol' eco crafter. I almost always use second hand materials when crafting, so I love the idea of this group.
She's called the Replica Enterprize. She's Melbourne's tall ship, and a replica of the first ship to settle in Melbourne. Almost all the wood used in making her was second hand, including 100 year old wharf timbers, salvaged brewing vats, rescued wool-store floors. Umm... here's a link to their site http://www.enterprize.org.au/
Hi Laura, I love arts and crafts, and would love to be part of this group. In the meantime, I have to make some paper mâché napkin art for a school fund raiser and cannot find napkins other than with flowers or cupcakes and macaroons. I was thinking more sea shells, starfish etc... Any idea where I can find such napkins? Thank you, Alcmene
Hey Laura, I have just scheduled your meetup to recur every third sunday of each month. If any details need to be changed eg.time, venue etc. Please let me know. How many months do you want these meetups to continue for?
Lovely to meet you on Saturday. I doubt I'll have anything (much?) to sell at the next stall as I am only starting out on my craft journey. I plan to rsvp 'yes' to this meet up to help out on the stall. If req, I'm happy to provide $ support for the stall fee (excl the membership fee iou). Let me know what's required. K
Just saw the photos of the scarf. Looks great
Lovely to meet you too, thank you for your hospitality. No the silver water bottle is not mine. I just came with the mineral water! See you again soon and with your scarf!
Hi Laura, back and getting things sorted. Went to MES this afternoon and bought some black ink, a squeegee, and some screen "ink" & screen cover. You paint on ink, let it dry, then squeegee on the cover "stuff", let it dry, then wash off "ink" and you're left with the pattern. I've also got some cloth. Hopefully others will bring screens & another couple of squeegees. I'll bring some books so that people can read them for inspiration & while waiting for stuff to dry. Marianne 0450 522 005
Yes, I think 8 is the upper limit. Mx
Hi Laura, with seven people coming it's going to be tight for everyone to be doing screen printing all afternoon. So what I propose is that I demonstrate and that people take turns to use the available space afterwards. it will be easier if it's a warmish day as then we can use the table on the balcony. I have lots of design, art and fashion books so people can also read them and have 'cups of tea' while they're waiting for a space at the table. Mx
