It's that time of year again! Time to make your plans for the PA Gourd Gathering! This is an exciting year because for the first time we will accommodate the American Gourd Society's annual meeting, and we will have an official competition. We have held competitions before, but not on this scale, so I am particularly looking forward to seeing the innovative gourd creations that these competitions will attract.
Again, PA will also host a phenomenal array of gourd crafting classes; taking place from Thursday to Saturday. I will be teaching 4 classes, 2 of which are brand new this year. See above: Barn Owl Pyrography, Golden Fish, Cardinal in Color, and Butterfly Pyrography Sampler, which incidentally was featured in the latest issue of Pyrography Magazine.
The PA Gourd Gathering will be held at the Lebanon Valley Expo Center from June 14th through June 16th. For more details about everything visit the official website here: www.pagourdgathering.com Click the Workshops link at the top of the page to see all the classes being held and to sign up. Registrations begin on April 2 for members and April 4 for non-members.
Hope to see you there! Please stop by and say "Hi!"
I am Jenn Avery, of JRA Gourd Art. I have been an artist all my life, and my work has taken many twists and turns and many directions. For the past 17+ years I have been a gourd artist and teacher specializing in gourd pyrography. I love to try new art techniques and different crafts, and am excited to share with anyone who is interested!
