Making a herb vase holder- Gourd Workshop, Times Square Mall, Mt. Vernon, IL February 2011 – Our students had the opportunity to learn many techniques to do on gourds with this workshop. Here they are learning to coil and weave the top of a gourd vase. Afterwards they used stencils and acrylics to paint their own designs. Then they finished their designs by adding dried herbs and potpourri. The result was awesome vases!!!!
