Workshop Overview


You will love this class and love having this thunder maker in your home. When the gourd is “shaken” have the sounds of thunder vibrate for you!  Learn how to choose the correct shape, cut the bottom, add a membrane and spring, “sounding holes” and a design. The sound waves the gourd makes are deep like a bass or cello.

We start by choosing the right gourd, cutting techniques and sanding to prep the bottom for a membrane and spring, then finishing your gourd with your own unique design and decorative touches.
