The Great Owl Sale and other news

June 21st, 2012


We have been keeping pretty quiet here at OKH HQ, but we have a bunch of announcements today!

Cornelia accidentally pumped out a few too many owls in the owl factory this month, so we are very happy to announce the Great Owl Sale!


All owls are $40 off (now $70 AUD), and you can choose your new little owl friend in our Etsy store.

The sale is only on for a limited time, and will end on the 30th of June, so make sure to check it out before then!

We are pleased to announce that we are almost ready to draw our facebook competition! You have one week left to like us on facebook to go in the draw for a prize pack worth $100, yay! So get liking and tell your friends to like us too!

Also, we regret to inform you that due to circumstances beyond our control, the pop-up market event scheduled for this weekend has been cancelled. We are sorry for any sadness this may cause!

Market Cancelled

We went to Tasmania and had a great time at Fullers. Check out our Gallery to see a couple of snaps from our holiday. We were so impressed by the little owlets made by our audience in Launceston. Check out what a good job they did!

Visit to Tasmania!

May 16th, 2012

Cat and Isobel are flying off to Tasmania tomorrow for a couple of special launches at Fullers bookshops in Hobart and Launceston. We’re bringing a few bits and pieces we used to make the book and will be talking about what we do and how we do it!

The Hobart event is 5.30pm, Thursday May 17th at 131 Collins St, Hobart. Tickets are $5 and can be reserved through the Fullers website.

The Launceston event is at 2pm, Saturday May 19th at 93 John St, Launceston. This is a free event – check out their event listing for a special offer.

So if you live in Tasmania, hopefully we’ll see you soon!
