Our Demonstrator will be Grace Anne Swanson. Grace is a watercolor and acrylic artist but discovered the world of gourds about 5 years ago.

She loves every facet of this art form — from the cleaning, to burning, to sanding, to dying — you name it.

Grace says it is a great challenge to be working in 3-D instead of 2-D.

Her interest in gourds was sparked by a one-day workshop that she took at San Diego Botanic Garden. she knew about gourds from her childhood in Nigeria, where the people use gourds for everything, from spoons to bowls and for storage.

She purchases her gourds uncleaned and uncut from Welburn Gourd Farm

Grace is a member of the San Diego County Gourd Artists and the California Gourd Society.

Please join us for this unique demonstration!
