2022 Workshop Program
Have a Gourd Day!
August 23 | 9 - 4
Join gourd artist Annelies Gebert for a “gourd” day of fun! You will be working with prepped gourds to learn two dying techniques and finished with gourd wax. The three-dimensional surface, exclusive shapes and various textures of the gourds will have you creating unique pieces. You will drill the gourd rims and finish with natural materials, such as philodendron sheath, along with your choice of beads, feathers and any other embellishments you or Annelies bring to play with. Please wear an old shirt or apron.
Annelies Gebert has been using nature as an influence for her gourd artistry since 1997. Using basket-making techniques learned at a convention, she utilizes a wide variety of natural fibers to create unique gourd pieces. The three-dimensional surface, exclusive shapes and various textures of the gourds take her imagination to new levels. Annelies uses a hands-on teaching approach, allowing her students to get the most out of their studio time.
