Class description


Are you new to the world of gourds? Are you wondering where you should start? Do you feel there has to be a better and easier way to clean, and design gourds? Would you like to have more ideas of what products to use and where to purchase them? This class will help to answer these questions and much more.


This fun, high energy class is your opportunity to get information and hands-on experience to begin your adventure into the fun world of gourding. And best of all, you'll get to make your own little vase, like in the photos above, to take home with you.

The "Dive into Decoupage" project is a perfect class to dive into the exciting world of gourding. You may think that you already know how to decoupage because you learned to decoupage in the 70’s. Well, in this class you will learn a fun new way to decoupage on a curved surface using a water pen and decorative paper napkins. And you'll even have time to finish your decoupaged piece in this half-day, morning class!


Everything you need will be provided to complete the decoupage project other than the items listed in the "What you are asked to bring" section below.


Walk-ins will be accepted if the class is not full.

What you are asked to bring

  • Bring an apron or old shirt to protect your clothes
  • Water or other drink to stay hydrated
