I have been the Co-Coordinator of The Los Angeles West Gourd Artisans for over a decade. We are members of The California Gourd Society. We meet monthly in my Griffgarden Art Studio in Venice, CA.
We have over a dozen members who had enjoyed working together and learning together on a multiplicity of projects ranging from gourd pyrography, doll and mask making, sculpture, wax resist, gourd basketry, leather dyes, Shekere and gourd rain-stick making, gourd shard-cards, gourd jewelry, Huichol bead-work on gourds, watercolors on gourds, using basketry techniques with pine needles, seaweed, Dracena Draco, raffia and embellishments and so much more.

2nd grade class project.

We are an exciting Patch and meet the first Wednesday of each month at my Venice Art Studio from 7-9 pm. All members are required to join the California Gourd Society annually and pay a nominal $3.00 fee for each meeting’s dues.
