Gourd Workshop


Betsey taught a two day, intensive workshop from 9am to 5pm on the 22nd, and 23rd of June. She only allowed 30 minutes for lunch. What a task master! The attendees will take the knowledge and skills gained here and pass them on at future Patch meetings. The workshop was hosted by Nolly Cantey at her residence in Bamberg. Thanks for opening your home to us Nolly. Here are some of the highlights.
