Description
The Tennessee Volunteer Gourd Society (TVGS) will hold its 6th annual spring gourd festival entitled Home Grown & Hand Made at the Bledsoe Community Complex on April 19-21, 2013. The complex is located at 234 Allen P Deakins Rd, Pikeville, TN 37367. This show is a good opportunity for the public to meet regional gourd artisans, crafters and growers. Admission to the event is free to the public and RV parking is available on the grounds. As our theme indicates, all products displayed and demonstrated will be “home grown” and “hand made”. Several gourd growers from the region will be displaying and selling a marvelous variety of gourdsall dried and ready for crafting. Crafters use gourds to create masks, decorative vessels, statues, seasonal ornaments and elegant objects d’art. A ribbon competition will be held this year with approximately 22 classes and judging by American Gourd Society certified judges according to the AGS judging criteria. There will be gourd crafting workshops and demonstrations available throughout the 3 day event. Some techniques used in crafting gourds are pyrography, pine needle weaving, silk dyes, acrylic painting and decoupage. The Tennessee Volunteer Gourd Society is the Upsilon Chapter of the American Gourd Society. We are a 501(c)(3) organization. Our purpose is to band together those persons who are interested in the history, horticulture, culture, uses and art/crafting of gourds.
