    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.  

    The Instructor will provide all materials and supplies for the class.

    Students need to bring an apron. If you have your own dust mask, please bring it.  Bring your lunch, or buy one from the vendors in the square.

    Covid protocols are in place including masking and distancing
