This class is open to all skill levels.  You will learn how to create works of art with gourds while enjoying the view from the Prairie Woods Nature Center in Oak Grove Park. Instructor Dave Oppegard will provide all instructions and supplies needed, including easy-to-use templates to make a beautiful southwest style gourd bowl of your design. This year’s theme is Animal Designs of the Southwest. You will choose your own design elements, including bison, bears, birds, turtles, and many others. Beads, leather, woodburning, stones, pine needles, and other accessories will be available too.

This class is limited to 14 people ages teen through adult; the cost is $20 per person to be paid at the door. Everything you’ll need, including the gourds are supplied. If you have your own acrylic pens you are welcome to bring them along.

Please bring your own sack lunch and snacks. No red liquid allowed in the nature center.
