Alcohol inks, when mixed, blended or washed together create a plethora of vibrant colors and gourd artist Sue Brogdon is on hand to demonstrate more than a dozen different ways to utilize these bold colors – dripping, outlining, stamping, painting, and blending, to name a few. With some additional insights into color theory, students then have the opportunity to try their hand at each technique. In the afternoon it’s time for free-form wire wrapping and embellishing their gourds, “cannonballs” and ornament-sized as well. Please bring plastic or latex gloves, heat tool (if you have one), fast drying gel glue such as Gorilla glue, scissors, flat nosed pliers, wire cutter and a roll of  30 yard/26 gage copper wire (available from Michael’s,  JoAnn’s or Hobby Lobby). Instructor provides two “cannonball” and four small gourds, alcohol inks, dye inks, brushes, sealant and embellishments such as feathers, beads and rocks to complete each of custom-designed pieces.
