GOURDS: From Garden to Centerpiece
March 26th - Sorry sold out. Aromas Grange
AHA is featuring a new workshop this February all about gourds. Gourds provide a natural canvas that can be painted. They can also be wood burned, pierced, carved, cut, and glued together to form new shapes.
This workshop will start with a trunk show of decorated gourds to introduce a few ideas of what can be done with them. Then we will focus on several alcohol ink techniques which will be used on a gourd bowl, a small gourd ornament, and a gourd shard pendant. We'll play with yarn and beads as we decorate the top of the bowl.
There will be time to talk about growing your own gourds as well as how to select and prepare gourds to be used in your projects.
Come and join us in a fun day of play and learn how to go from garden to centerpiece with a gourd! Sorry sold out...
