On Sunday, November 5th at 1 p.m., gourd artist Graham Ottoson will teach about gourds and gourd crafting at the Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center. She will then lead participants in creating a beautiful night light.

The project involves using a small electric drill to create a design on a prepared gourd. Attendees should please bring: an apron, a dust mask (there will be some extras), and an idea for a simple design for a night light.

Participants must be at least 18 years old. Pre-registration including $24 payment is required since seating is limited. To register for this program, please contact Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County 4-H Program at 963-7286.
