From the Garden to the Gallery: Creating Functional Art from Gourds
In this workshop students design functional art from dried gourds. Dried gourds have a wood-like consistency, creating a unique medium. The class introduces the tools used in preparing and designing a lidded gourd bowl and vase. Demonstrations of coloring treatments and application of embellishments allows students to elevate their pieces to functional art. By creating art from gourds, participants with an interest in cutting, carving, burning, and experimenting with color and shape will gain or enhance their ability to design unique one-of-a-kind art pieces. Open to all skill levels.
