Alcohol Ink Birdhouse Gourd

Kids shouldn’t have all the fun in the summer. Our adult workshops on Alcohol Ink and Cannonball Gourd Lanterns were so much fun, we had to squeeze in one more workshop.

Alcohol Ink Birdhouse Gourd

Art First Inc - Summer Art Camp for Kids - Hockessin DE
  • Workshop Date: Thursday, July 18, 2019
  • Time: 6:30-8:30
  • Registration Deadline: Friday, July 12, 2019
  • Cost: $40

Transform a dried gourd into a stunning garden birdhouse through the magic of alcohol inks. Learn new techniques, experiment with favorite color palettes and watch the stunning colors transform a plain gourd into a work of art. Watch the inks drip and slide across the surface to create a stone like appearance and add luminous highlights with metallic inks for pizazz. Take home* an exquisite birdhouse for the birds to enjoy.

*Due to time restraints, please leave the bird house overnight to be sealed then pick up the following day.

Reminder: There is still time to register for the Harry Potter adult workshop on Thursday, August 1, 2019.
