What's a Patch?

A Patch is a local organization of Texas Gourd Society members who meet on a regular basis to share knowledge and techniques about gourd art.  Often they will hold workshops led by a patch member. Periodically they wil invite a teacher to hold a workshop.  

Join us to meet other gourd artists and learn gourd art techniques.
