Item details

I love to teach gourd art classes for adults and kids. Turning moldy gourds into keepsake treasures provides a unique art and fun class for all ages.

Throughout my gourd life, I have been on a local TV show doing kid's crafts. Then I was fortunate enough to be on HGTV and DIY Network. These experiences really prepared me to work in front of a camera, so I can teach in the most inspiring and divine way. I love sharing what I know about gourds and gourd art.

This DVD was produced by Video Edge and allowed me to go step by step on two projects. You can use the techniques I demonstrate for all kinds of other gourd projects, whether a project in from one of my books, one of my classes, or something you want to do in a classroom.

The pictures show the back of the DVD case and the insert. The DVD runs a little over 48 minutes, and is easy to use as a reference time and time again. Patterns and supplies list are on the insert and also on the DVD.

Learn, see, and do . . . with me as your guide.
- How to go back and fix mistakes like they never happened
- Safety tips for cutting and working with gourds
- A simple brush technique to make you look like a pro
- How to clean and prepare gourds
- Follow easily as I go step-by-step

And PLEASE email me with your questions and comments as you make your gourd projects. I am here to help you explore your own magic and creativity. And if you are interested in having me teach or demonstrate in person for you or a group, just ask.

And if you need help finding dried gourds for your projects, I can help with that too.

thank you
