This gourd helps me introduce my two new books. Each book has 15 patterns drawn on a grid. One with squares,one with triangles. You will choose two patterns from the books and learn how to draw them on paper.

Then you will draw them on your gourd and use my toasting technique to burn and shade your patterns.

 

I will provide the gourd ready to burn and will have copies of my books to use. If you like, you can purchase them at the end of the class. This will provide you with 30 pattern tutorials.
