Create Celtic Art on Gourds

Dump the patterns that you have been relying on and learn to design your own Celtic knots and borders to fit your gourds.

Delve into some of the history of Celtic art, and how various styles developed over time.

In this course you will start with the basics, and build up to more complex knots.

You will learn how to draw your designs directly onto the gourd, without the need of transferring from a pattern.

We will also go over the basics of pyrography, how to get consistent, sharp lines and how to shade your knots to make them appear more three-dimensional. I will also give you some ideas on using texture and color.


Begin with a simple knot then form more complex knots for interesting new designs.

Braided Borders

Learn how to start with a braided border, then how to manipulate the strands for new knotwork patterns.


Design your own Celtic animal with intertwining knots.
