Workshop Schedule

Whether painted, dyed, woodburned or carved, gourds can be transformed into works of art. In response to the increasing interest in gourds and gourd art, we're excited to offer a creative assortment of gourd crafting workshops to help you discover this wonderful pursuit.

All classes are held on our gourd farm just outside the quaint little town of Cookstown. Surrounded by lush gardens and the beautiful gourd patch, this is the perfect place for a day of learning and creativity.

Our instructors have many years of gourd crafting and teaching experience and represent some of the best gourd artists in Canada. Each is an expert in their field.

All classes, unless otherwise noted, are 6 hours in length with a half hour lunch break. A convenient starting time of 10 a.m. for all our classes makes for a leisurely drive from many parts of Ontario and the United States. All the following classes are rated for beginners.
