This gourd will challenge you with several techniques: designing, pyrography, mixing inks and dyes, adding paint, possibly stippling or undercutting and making quikwood ammonites using a mold. Dorothy will show you examples of ammonites that have been cut in half, so you can see their design and colours. She will guide you in recreating the ammonites on your gourd, making your own placement and designs inside the shell and offering options for a rim treatment. You probably will not finish your gourd by the end of the class, but you will be well underway.
Students will need to bring a prepared gourd. You may finish the inside of your bowl, but do not put a finish on the outside of the gourd.
