Many designs to choose from this year! All ages and levels of artistic skill are welcome. Bring friends and family for a fun day of creativity. You will have various Winter gourd designs to choose from. 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. Prices range from $7 to $38. 

Pre-registration is required. There will be a $10.00 registration fee per person which will be applied to the gourds you craft during the workshop. Full refunds will be given if notified by 4:00 pm on Wednesday, November 23rd for anyone who is signed up for the December 5th and 6th classes. Anyone who is signed up for the December 12th and 13th classes will have until Thursday, December 3rd at 4:00 pm to cancel. Please call Dori at 717-776-6029 Monday-Friday 10:00 am – 5:00 pm if you need to cancel.

If you are ordering for a group and would like to sit together, please only place one order under one name. Please DO NOT give me 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.
