2019 NGS Spring Retreat Classes 

Friday, May 31st and Saturday, June 1st

Here is your opportunity to have fun honing your techniques or learning something new. We are very proud of our teachers and the wonderful classes they are offering at our Spring Retreat, located at the Zephyr Point Lake Tahoe Retreat Center in Zephyr Cove, Nevada.

If you've never taken a gourding class, now is the time to take the plunge. Even better, get a friend to take a class with you! Our classes are fun for all levels of gourders.

Most of the class supplies are provided. Check the class details to see what you need to bring.

We are offering full and half day classes, so make sure you double-check the class times when picking out your classes.
