WSGS Mission:
As a non-profit organization, the purpose of the Washington State Gourd Society (WSGS) is to promote interest, share ideas, learn from others, and teach to all who are interested in the culture, use, history, and craftsmanship of gourds. The WSGS was formed in October of 2007 by a small group of local gourd artists who wanted to promote the craft of gourding in Washington State. The Washington State Gourd Society does not discriminate on the basis of age, color, disability, education, financial status, height, marital status, national origin, political beliefs, religion, race, sex, sexual orientation, weight, or whether you craft in big, small, round, or skinny gourds; this applies to all our activities or educational opportunities.
