Fine Gourd Art, Gourd Art Classes and Tutorials 
by Bonnie Gibson
Creating art with an organic gourd canvas, Bonnie Gibson expresses her love for nature and the world around her. A lifelong interest in diverse artistic media including woodcarving, scale miniatures, scrimshaw, glass, and clay has influenced her art and provided her with a wealth of valuable experiences and technical abilities.  By using gourds in innovative and unexpected ways, her designs and techniques make her work distinctive.   Her long time goal has been to lift gourds out of the realm of "craft" and into greater acceptance as fine art.  To that end, she enjoys manipulating gourds in new ways, inviting the viewer to interpret them as something more while retaining their natural essence.

The Journey
Bonnie is a nationally recognized gourd art instructor and offers classes at her home in Tucson, as well as traveling around the United States to teach at festivals and to offer workshops and retreats.
In addition to authoring the popular gourd art book "Gourds with Southwestern Motifs",  Bonnie has also written many stand alone projects and tutorials.  These packets are perfect for those that are not able to take a class in person
