This workshop is cancelled, but if you are interested in making this type of globe light, Graham will teach it in Saturday's Pierced Pendent workshop.

Transform an ordinary gourd into a sweet glowing light! Gourd artist Graham Ottoson, of Gourdlandia (just outside Ithaca, NY) will be the guest instructor for this fun workshop. Starting with a cleaned and dried cannonball gourd, participants will stain and wax the gourd, then draw a design. Small electric drills are used to bring the design alive with lots and lots of little holes. It's a noisy, dusty, fun activity that many find strangely satisfying. Glass beads can be added for a little accent color. With the LED bulb (provided), your design will shine beautifully on nearby surfaces. It's a good idea to come with design ideas in mind. Big, bold shapes work well.  Ages 14 and up.
