Decorated gourds are popular handmade accessories for homes today.

Learn to make decorative gourds by attending “Wood Burning on Gourds” from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Oct. 13, in the Conference Room of the Community Service Center in Sylva.

Ronna Wuttke, of Turtle Feathers of Bryson City, will lead the workshop. Wuttke is an accomplished crafter whose specialty is working with natural materials.

Participants will learn the basics of wood burning while completing a sunflower pattern on a gourd.

Persons attending are asked to bring a gourd cleaned and ready for decorating, lunch and a wood-burning tool if available. The instructor has a limited number of tools that can be shared.
