There are six Patch meetings a month and members are welcome to attend any, or all, of them. Please click on Calendar for monthly Patch information. Find out what the monthly Gourd Project is and get a copy of the supply list for the class.



General Membership Meetings for the Idaho Gourd Society are held twice a year; the second Saturday of April and the second Saturday of October. Meetings are at the Woodcraft Store in Boise.

In addition we have a fun filled Annual Picnic in June, our state Gourd Festival on October 27th  & 28th , 2018 and our annual Christmas Party in December.

The IDGS is proud to participate in the annual Idaho Artistry in Wood Show along with the woodworkers, scrollers, carvers, and turners of the Treasure Valley. This fun event takes place in March 2018

New workshops, field trip, and start-to-finish classes will be announced when scheduled.

             Monthly Patch Meetings

Where do gourds come from?  How many kinds of gourds are there?  What kind of paints can I use?  How do you dry gourds?  How do you clean gourds?  You’ll find plenty of answers at the meetings and workshops.
