Patricia had been an High School teacher for 26 years in Lawton and has recently retired. She helps John with all phases of the studio including show preparation.

John holds yearly gourd workshops at the museum where people can learn the craft directly from him. The workshops can fill up fast as there is limited space, so be sure to reserve your space soon. Go to: www.museumgreatplains.org to view the dates and times of these workshops.
