Gourd Demo & How-to Videos!
This has been on the back-burner for a few years, to record video for gourd crafting demonstrations and tutorials. I wanted to have some video content for students are aren't able to take a class with me in person, as well as try to reach some potential new gourders that are just looking to get into the craft.
All of us have been affected by virus lockdowns, and as an artist and instructor I have found my only lifeline is the internet, since so many events are canceled. I am sure you have also had many disappointments in this crazy year. So that was my impetus to plow ahead and begin to make some content for you!
No longer waiting until I have the right camera equipment, or the perfect lighting, or any other excuse that kept holding me back!
The first of these are in two parts. Part one is the burning of the butterfly above, and part two is burning the Celtic border and background. I am making these available for you to view in full on YouTube.
I hope you will enjoy these videos, and if you do please let me know! I sure would appreciate a "like" and a "subscribe" and a "comment"! That will give me encouragement to make more, and if you would like to see me cover other content in the future, please let me know!
Here are the links to the videos:

Love your work! I am newer to gourds, I started working with them in January2020. I work with many mediums, pen and ink being one of them and so I fell in love with pyrography. I look forward to viewing your videos. Thanks so much for posting them.

Thanks for the demo video. I’ve taken a couple of your classes and it’s helpful to see a refresher on pyrography techniques!

Thank you so much for the videos. I am new to gourd art and have grown my own gourds first time this year, not a lot available in NZ but keen to learn.
