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 on gourds? Would you like to have more ideas of what products to use and where to purchase them? This class will answer these questions and much more.

I will share my experience with you and help make your gourding experience easier. I will bring tools that I use in gourding and explain their uses. I will demonstrate transferring a design on a gourd and then I will show how to wood burn the design.

You will have the opportunity for a hands-on experience with cutting and carving, learning easy ways to clean and prepare the outside and inside of a gourd, learning how to blend alcohol inks, learning how to use marbleizing media, and so much more.

I will provide everything including handouts for this class and as a bonus, you will create two lovely ornaments to take home with you.

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

What you are asked to bring

Each student is asked to bring the following items to class:

  • Just bring yourself and a work apron (Nevada Gourd Society has beautiful work aprons for sale at their booth.)

About the instructor

After retirement in 2015, Pam started teaching gourd art in Southern and Northern Nevada. She says the finished gourd is always a thrill because sometimes the end product is not what you had in mind. The gourd guides and talks to you. She also teaches wire wrapping of gemstones and does incorporate her gemstones in many of her pieces.‚Äč
