With Susie Nonn's blessing and permission, Carla Arnold will explain a gourd art technique offered in a class by Susie at the Wuertz Festival last February.  She will explain a step by step process using alcohol inks to create a pattern in brilliant colors on a gourd upon which a spiral rim is cut.
