Please read all of these instructions before registering as things have changed due to Covid.

There are many Fall gourd designs to choose from this year! You add your artistic (or not so artistic) touches with the help of our skilled crafters to make a unique gourd that is all your own. All ages and levels of artistic skill are welcome. Bring friends and family for a fun day of creativity. Prices range from $2 to $38. We have four days and a variety of times to choose from.

Pre-registration is required. There will be a $10 registration fee per person which will be applied to the gourds you craft during the workshop. If you are ordering for a group and would like to sit together, please only place one order under one name. Please DO NOT provide individual names. Example: If you are ordering 4 tickets – put them all under your name, this way all the tickets will be grouped together. This will eliminate you being disappointed when you get here and we were not aware that there were several groups under different names that wanted to sit together.

Once you have registered, you will receive a confirmation email that will have tickets attached. Please print out tickets and bring along or be able to bring up on your phone the day of the event to receive your refund when you checkout.


We will be holding multiple workshops on each day of the Fall Create Your Own. Classes will be held inside at 9, 11:30, 2 and 4:30. Each class will be 2 hours long. There will be different check in areas for each room. As we see what fills and what people are preferring during for seating because of health concerns we will open additional classes.

  • Inside classes will be limited to 25 people to each room and social distancing will be in effect.
  • Masks will be required during this time.
  • There will be a display of gourds and supplies in each room.
  • Will run very much like year's past Create Your Owns but on a smaller scale.

Wait List:

Since this is completely new this year, we are not sure how fast the spots will fill up so we are opening up wait lists.
