Gourd Art

In April 2013 i took a Gourd Art class at the John C Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. Normally I teach enameling there, but am now starting to take classes, too. This craft education center is a great place to have a vacation with family and friends - the food is delicious and the workshops are wonderful. My teacher was Fonda Haddad, whose work is inspiriing. This page shows gourds I've made.
