How it works

Join us for our Create Your Own event where you can work with our experts to create your own gourd design! Choose between a variety of gourd design projects (listed below), and make your own masterpiece! No artistic experience is needed. Our team will help guide you through the process of making your own projects where you can paint, dye, assemble, and accessorize. You can complete as many projects as you would like within your workshop time.
