Classes were given the last 2 Saturdays in March at the Rochester Patch and on March 23rd & 26th at Barbs home in Boise. The following are some pictures taken at each class.
If you didn’t attend this class you missed a very fun and rewarding time. All the whales turned out great and Barbs did a great job of teaching!!
We all plan to bring them to the April gourd meeting for a pod performance
In the beginning…
We started with a penguin gourd
The mouth was cut, the gourd cleaned and painted black inside. The teeth inserted…
Next we cut the tail and flukes…
We now taped around the tail & flukes so we could glue them into place..almost finished!!
The preceding pictures were furnished by Alan.
This is his whale stained and mounted to the drift wood base

Welcome to the Idaho Gourd Society. We were first organized in 1998 and we are celebrating our seventeenth anniversary, this year, 2015.
The purpose of the Idaho Gourd Society is to create a fun, friendly, and relaxed environment where gourd enthusiasts in Idaho can get together and create gourd art. We are dedicated to the education and instruction of those interested in gourd history, cultivation, painting, crafts, and fine gourd art. We offer you an opportunity to participate in classes, festivals, shows, and competitions. From beginner to expert, we have something for everyone.
