Clary Gardens to host gourd decorating workshop

| August 5, 2015

COSHOCTON – Clary Gardens, located at 588 W. Chestnut Street in Coshocton, is hosting a gourd decorating workshop. Come join Norma Owens, local gourd artist, Thursday, Aug. 20 at 5:30 p.m. to get a hands-on learning experience decorating and creating one-of-a kind gourds to showcase. The class cost is $16 or $10 for Clary Garden’s Members and is open to the public. Call Clary Gardens at (740)622-6524 to RSVP. Even if you don’t feel artistic, decorating gourds is more about creativity, and this workshop will walk you step-by-step through the process. Participants will learn the basics of gourd growing, drying, cutting, wood-burning, and decorating. All participants will get to take home their own beautiful creations. In addition, check out the decorative gourd display in the Art Hall at this year’s Coshocton County Fair for new exciting ways locals are using gourds as decorative and useful household objects.

Clary Gardens is free and open to the public daily. Visitors are always welcome to take a self-guided tour with maps available in the garden parking lots or bring a blanket for picnicking in the amphitheater. Clary Gardens is located at 588 West Chestnut Street, just past Roscoe Village on State Route 541 West.
