Reggie Eakin is a fifth generation Southerner and proud is of it! He creates and teaches gourd art as a means to show off what the region can do with gourds. Reggie grew up in Savannah near the ocean and salt water marshes where his father carried him fishing. As he tells it, his dad loved to fish and Reggie loved to draw – so he carves and teaches lots of saltwater related art.

Reggie will be at the Statesboro Regional Public Library to talk about the art and craft of making gourd art, and he will be bringing some examples of the incredible work he does with gourds.  Join us!

BEES DO IT – MAYBE YOU SHOULD TOO!

Brent Tharp is President of the Ogeechee Area Beekeepers Association, a local club representing beekeepers in Bulloch and surrounding counties. http://oabees.com

The group meets monthly to help and support each other and all levels of experience are welcome to come join the meetings.

HOMESTEADING WORKSHOP:  LOTION BARS

Lotion bars are solid at room temperature like a bar of soap, but when rubbed on the skin, a tiny amount melts and is transferred to the skin, leaving a highly moisturizing and very thin layer. The advantage to making your own is your ability to use all natural ingredients which can be modified and/or scented any way you like.

Katy Jo Horton is co-owner of Kainat Josephiné, http://kainatbeauty.com  an all-natural producer of health and beauty products company based in Savannah, GA. Katy Jo will lead a lotion bar making workshop at the library, She will talk about the characteristics of the various essential oils one can add to the mix, and participants will make and take home their very own unique lotion bar!
