This class involves the use of many products that produces the multiple finishes and techniques designed by Maria Dellos.  We will design on five shards that you take home finished.  They can later be cut to create jewelry pendants, name tags or just to keep as a reminder for future projects.  I guarantee to inspire you with many new designing techniques.

This is an all day class with intense and enjoyable learning.  All the products and material used in this class is provided in your kit.  A colorful step-by-step instruction pamphlet is also supplied for you to follow in class and to take home.

The first two shards show the lovely colors of Alcohol Inks.  You will see more of these examples in class so you can decide what colors you would like create on your shard.  This is done on one of the five shards unless you want to make the two with alcohol inks and eliminate one of the other shards.

 The Kokopelli Shard contains a technique I created using two different ink colors that is share in class.  We will use Heat Activated Glue and silver leafing.  This is a very exciting technique that I am sure you will love. 

 The Geometric Shard is really exciting and I know you will love how this is done.  It is easier than it may look, but with my direction, you will create this attractive geometric design with me.  You will use Heat Activated Glue along with several embossing powder colors.  We will use paper punches and scrapbooking scissors to create various geometric patterns. 

The 5th shard is to be the latest of my techniques offered at the time of this class.

 Embellishments may vary slightly due to beads availability.  You my shop my store during my visit.

You will learn many of Maria’s techniques including how to transfer patterns to your gourd.  You will learn how to properly use Ink dyes and Acrylic Paints.  You will leave this class with a better understand of how to design your next gourd on your own.

To join this class, you need to have some experience with woodburning and a love for details and geometric patterns.  This is an enjoyable class teaching many skills and is supported with a step by step instruction booklet with over 50 pictures to help you follow the steps in class.

In order to complete this project in class, this gourd required woodburning a portion of the front design to allow the special cut at the top.  From there, the inside is cleaned and painted.  Prior to class I did all of the above for you as this cuts 5 hours of class time allowing you enough time to continue woodburning and coloring the remaining designs.

The embellishment is handmade by me.  All you have to do is attach it to your finished gourd. This is embellishment is subject to availability and another may be offered.

Supply List:

Woodburning tool
Baby Wipes
1/8″ and 1/4″ paintbrushes   I sell if you need to buy them.

All products, varnish, glue and other items needed to complete this project are provided in your kit.

Maria’s teaches a sensible and creative approach to designing on a gourd. After this class, you will make decisions for yourself by following Maria’s easy steps to designing and coloring your gourd.

Beverage and snacks are provided. Classes are offered at my home in a very comfortable setting. If there are special needs or requests, please be sure to let me know before class.

This class is a basic beginner approach to gourd art beginning with placing the pattern in the perfect spot on your gourd.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you, Maria Dellos
