Dried gourds have been used since primitive times as vessels, musical instruments, floats for fishing nets, talismans, houses for spirits, cricket cages and drums. Today’s gourd art reflects some of this history. Students at BLOOM use a variety of methods to embellish their gourds: wood burning, engraving, painting, staining, pen and ink, sculpting, weaving and decoupage. Explore this offering during our Open Studio hours.
