Class Description:  Every gourd artist and enthusiast needs an electrocuted gourd in their collection.  What a conversation piece!  We will start the morning in the store at Wuertz Farm  where you can purchase one large or two small gourds for use today.  Then we will adjourn to the outdoor classroom and design a rim specific to each piece,  cut the gourd and do minor cleanup of the exterior.  After you clean the inside, we will move onto inking the surface with dye inks and then we will add a rim treatment specific for each piece.  Instructor will cover basic coiling as well as couching and using beads in the rim treatment.
