Welcome to Gourd Art Enthusiasts. I have been a member for almost a year and have found it to be a well managed site. Those in charge seem to do a great job. The photos are so inspiring and the communication is great. I do mostly woodburning but enjoy carving and plan to explore other media. My wife and I are retired school teachers and are happy to have time to pursue our crafts. Once again welcome.
