    Free to make decorations for our Winterfest Tree

    $10 per decoration for yourself!

    We will get in the Christmas spirit by making gourd decorations for our Winterfest tree.  These decorated trees are raffled off to raise money for Five Counties Children's Centre in Peterborough.  Let's see how many wonderful decorations we can make to fill the tree this year.  Kawartha Gourders will supply all materials and supplies for the class.  If we each make at least 5 decorations for the tree, what a fabulous display we will have.

    Non-Members are welcome to join our decoration day, to be inspired and learn from our gourding members.

    In this class, you will learn to use both hand and power tools for opening and cleaning gourds. Basic safety of working with gourds and care of tools  will be taught, so you will be able to use these tools on your own. You will sand and paint the inside of your gourd before using Adirondack dyes to give a colourful surface to the outside of your gourd. A glued leather rim will complete your gourd. Once you have completed this course you will be ready to apply a variety of techniques and express your creativity on a gourd. This class is a requirement for many other workshops in Gourd Art.
