This class will take you from a raw dirty gourd from the field, all the way to a finished piece of art.


We will start by washing a gourd, cutting the top, scraping the inside to clean it. Dyes and inks will be applied to achieve color. The student will have a choice of finishing the top of the gourd with basketry techniques or the natural rim. Embellishment will be offered also.
