Long ago, gourds were in daily use for such ordinary things as eating, drinking, storing grain and carrying water. This was true not only for the native people of our region but also for those who settled here from Europe. Today we have the luxury of manufacturing household items, but the beauty and charm of natural containers remains. The instructor will provide a variety of shapes and sizes of top quality gourds, tools to cut and clean them, and an array of art supplies that will enable you to create something truly unique. Possibilities include but are not limited to: drum, purse, hinged box, lidded bowl, mask, lantern, bucket, basket, or painted figure. Use your imagination! This 2-day class meets on June 13&14.
Tuition $95. Member Tuition $85. Materials Fee $25.
