Join Jan Haverty and Susan Grenwelge for a Gingerbread House Workshop at Gualala Arts.

On the first day you will be given pre-baked gingerbread house sections. We will make the frosting and you will assemble your own gingerbread house to take home. We will also assemble and decorate a large house for the Gualala Arts Festival of Trees, Gingerbread House Lane that takes place in November. The second day, we will work as a group to decorate the Gualala Arts Gingerbread House and, if time allows, you can start decorating you own Gingerbread House. Otherwise, you can take home the left-over goodies to finish decorating your unique Gingerbread House.

Jan Haverty is also going to produce a booklet with everything you always wanted to know about gingerbread houses called Gingerbread Tips, Tools, Techniques and Recipes.

We can only take 10 applications for this class so sign up no later than September 25th so we can start making plans for this fun holiday workshop! Call Gualala Arts at (707) 884-1138 to register. Visa and Mastercard accepted. For more information, contact the instructors.

Festival of Trees: Gingerbread House Lane & Contest

Everyone who can glue one cookie to another with frosting is encouraged to enter a gingerbread house in this year's Festival of Trees, Gingerbread House Lane to be held Thanksgiving weekend.

Houses can be made of any material including wood, ceramic or gingerbread. There will be many categories and ribbons for the winners - download the registration form here. All entries will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to Gualala Arts. This is a fun way to get into the holiday spirit, start a tradition, and help out Gualala Arts! Finished houses must be delivered to Gualala Arts between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon on Wednesday, November 22.
