what a hoot!

Jewellery findings with Freda from Raw Ceramics

I've been having such a beautiful time with the Brisbane chapter of Brown Owls over the last month. We've had more meet ups than usual in some great locations with some beautiful crafters including Freda from Raw Ceramics above who gave us the low down on how she creates her beautiful and unique jewellery findings for her ceramic pendants. Freda was so generous with her time and knowledge and we learnt heaps!

We had a super fun combined meet up with BrisStyle at the brand new Carindale library (and what a great library it is!) stitching and decorating a community bunting for Craft Caravan. Hey, there's me in the pic, that's because the lovely Sandrine who takes amazing photos was there :)
You can check out some of our bunting efforts this weekend over three days of mega craftiness (details here) plus you can join in over the weekend and add more bunting bits to it.

Brown Owls at Imogen's Art Space

And on Monday night we had our first meet up at Imogen's Art Space which is the funnest, sweetest, craftiest space we've been to. Imogen has an awesome line up of workshops for kids which you can check out here. We knitted the night away in preparation for the yarn bombing that will take place tomorrow (Friday 1 June) in King George Square.

I'm so looking forward to our mega meet up over this weekend and also to the rest of the year. You should come along too if you're in Brisbane :)

Here's some helpful links to check out:
