We meet in comfortable environments, whether in homes, studios or parks and so far we have started a collaborative quilt, held a board game social, baking days and participated in the Regional Social Forum by having a super fun art booth and allowing everyone a chance to join in.

We hope to hold more workshops and possible have a art show or other festivities in the future.  If you are interested in planning something contact: lwac2006@yahoo.ca

A few of us have had some practice now and want to spread the fun - or spread paint through a very fine screen. Here's what you should bring:

- A pre-made stencil, use vellum or thicker paper and cut out a shape where you want the paint to show on your fabric. Do something simple if it's your first try!
- A piece of fabric to put your design on
- A piece of cardboard about 16" square to stretch your fabric over
- A plastic bag to keep things tidy
- Masking or Painters Tape
- A pencil
- Fabric paint
- dish soap/simple green for clean-up
- If you have a silk-screen bring it! (we'll need to share)
- same with silk-screening kits

Don't worry if you don't have everything on this list, bring what you can, we'll share the rest. Please let us know if you have any art supplies you are willing to contribute. We really appreciate reusing fabric, paper and other materials. We have a message board happening about this event here:  http://londoncommons.net/forum/52
