Purple Crayon Workshop: Mini-Gourd Ornament Painting

December 2, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Looking for a unique ornament to hang on your tree or decorate your table this holiday season? Or not quite sure what to give that special someone on your list? Consider creating a gourdgeous painted mini-goard!

In this fun holiday workshop, Anna Holbrook will provide everything you need to turn miniature “dancing gourds” into works of art. You’ll receive two to four clean, dried gourds, examples of techniques you can use to decorate your gourds, strategies for successful designs, and plenty of time to play! Make your ornaments as simple or complex as you’d like. Either way, they’re sure to receive oohs and ahhs at your next holiday gathering!
