Spirit of the Desert Gourd Patch

The gourd pictured here is an example of a technique called pointillism. This technique was demonstrated at a recent meeting by Spirit of the Desert Patch member Kathy Kopjak.

Gourd Patch members have been very busy getting ready for the Wuertz Gourd Farm Festival which will be taking place February 8-10, 2019, at the Pinal County Fairgrounds in Casa Grande. If you have an interest in gourd art, purchasing gourd art or finding new supplies and equipment for your projects, make sure you don’t miss the festival! Many of our patch members will be participating in the Arizona Gourd Society Competition. Even if you don’t create gourd art yourself, it is definitely worth a trip to see the amazing projects by artists from all over the state. For more information, go to http://www.wuertzfarm.com/festival.html.

Spirit of the Desert Gourd Patch was established to share our love of gourds and gourd art with others who feel the same. We teach and continue to learn how to work safely with gourds while having fun. Spirit of the Desert is open to anyone living in the Valley. We’d love to have you join us!

Monthly meetings take place at the Arts and Crafts Room at Sun Lakes Country Club (25601 Sun Lakes Blvd, Sun Lakes, AZ) at 4:00 p.m. Please note: this is a new location for meetings.

Important dates coming up:

February 8-10, 2019 – Wuertz Gourd Farm Gourd Festival, Casa Grande

February 21, 2019 – Spirit of the Desert Gourd Patch monthly meeting 4:00 p.m.
