If you are new to gourding and you don't own a lot of gourding tools, this is a perfect class for you! I will have tools to share!
In this class, you will learn how to prepare the inside of your gourd to create the beautiful sounds of falling rain. You will then create your design on the outside with your choice of paints, dyes, wood burning, and leather. You can make your design as simple or complex as you like. This is a fun class for all levels of gourders. Make a soothing rain stick for yourself or as a gift for someone special!
Originally believed to be invented by the Mapuche people of south-central Chile, the rain stick was played as a musical instrument to bring rain. So call in the rain clouds with your own musical rain stick.... or use its gentle sound to soothe you after a rough day.
I will supply a class-ready 14-15" tall gourd, wire, noise makers, glue, leather, dyes and paints, some design patterns, a tutorial, and more.
