Jane Wilson teaches two one-day workshops where students learn to embellish a prepared gourd. These two workshops are similar but different and can be taken separately or together for a fun-filled weekend! To take both workshops, sign up for each separately. The first workshop is Jul 30, 2022.
This workshop is on Sunday. You will learn to coil with seagrass, weave knotless netting with waxed Irish linen thread around the gourd, latch wool roving to the rim, and add pre-drilled seashells as embellishments. $40 materials fee for one day or $70 for both days, paid directly to the instructor. Maximum class size is 12.
About the Instructor:
Jane Wilson was introduced to gourds in 2007 while still living in her home state of Kansas. An avid crafter who already had wood-carving skills, she became intrigued by another artist’s use of color and wood-burning techniques on gourds and began to develop these skills through classes and videos. Jane began to add coiling or twining to her gourds, developing a way to dye the cords to match the colors she uses on the gourds. Jane has shown locally and has also won competitions for her gourd art.
