I started three years ago by attending The Gourd Gathering in Cherokee, NC. I am a retired educator of 30 years. Since I was a high school English teacher, I never had any time for hobbies. I now attend The Gourd Patch in Hayesville, NC once a month. A group of us in Murphy, NC now try to meet once a week to "play" with gourds. I have painted them, stained them, and now I am learning to carve and do filigree on them. It is addictive.
You are very welcome. Your learning very well, and in no time you'll better and better. I haven't had the opportunity to have any classes so mine is all self taught. reading and looking. I'm still working to perfect it. But I sure have so much fun trying!
