Gourd Crafting Workshop 

The Knox County Park District will host a “Gourd Crafting” workshop on Thursday, September 15, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm at the Wolf Run Park House at 18033 Yauger Road. Nelson and Judy Litzenberg of Centerburg will host the event. During the workshop, participants will paint and decorate a gourd to serve as a centerpiece with additional fresh gourds.

The Litzenberg’s first became interested in gourds when they attended the Ohio Gourd Show at Mount Gilead in 1995. They have been growing and crafting with gourds ever since. Their main interest in gourd crafting is chip carving and painting. Gourds have been around since the beginning of time and used for dippers, food prep, food bowls, storage, etc. The Ohio Gourd Society will soon host the Ohio Gourd Show on October 7, 8 and 9 at the Delaware County Fairgrounds.

Class size is limited to 10 participants with a waiting list to follow. This is a first come first serve basis so register early and pre-pay.
