February 2011, Gourd Workshop at The Midwestern Herb and Garden Show, Times Square Mall, Mt. Vernon, IL Completed design – Our students learned many gourd art techniques with our herb vase gourd workshop. Wilsons Gourds taught students to coil, weaves, use stencils and acrylics to paint butterflies and flower designs, and design the inside of their vases with potpourri and various types of herbal flowers. The result as you can see is a beautiful vase to take home and enjoy. What a fun class.
