Welcome to GourdGoddess.com

I love working in gourds and I want you to love it too. This website is for other gourders, whether you are a beginner or a pro. I will write posts for you, share techniques, successes, failures and anything that I think may move you forward in learning new techniques or perfecting what you already know. Enjoy!
Gourd ArtGourds are a wonderful medium for artists to work with. Each gourd is Unique in shape, size, and color. That makes them an interesting canvas, one that lends itself well to painting, carving, and wood-burning (pyrography). Within these pages I will do my best to share my techniques, thoughts on products and anything that can help grow you as a Gourd Artist. I hope to inspire and encourage you all.


If you ever wanted to try your hand at making a gourd drum or weave a beautiful DreamCatcher in a gourd I wrote tutorials on these two subjects.

Each instant download pdf  tutorial is filled with high quality color photos (as well as plenty of text) to walk and guide you through these two techniques.

Drum Tutorial To make it easier to work with I had the Drum Tutorial made into a full color beautifully made booklet.  This booklet can be purchased for $8 through Etsy. Click on the picture to go there.
