Pumpkin Workshop: Hand-building – Sundays, August 11th and 18th, 6:00pm-9:00pm


2-Day Workshop August 11th and August 18th,
Sundays, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Celebrate the fall season by making a mini clay jack ‘o lantern! Not feeling spooky?  Opt to make a harvest pumpkin instead, or both!
All the materials you need to create the pumpkin will be provided by the studio (clay, tools and glazes). Please wear comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty or we have an apron for you to use.

This workshop is designed to be a bite-size clay experience. No previous experience is required.

Week 1: Create your own mini pumpkin sculptures by rolling slabs of clay, forming and carving the the jack o’ lantern face and/or make a pumpkin into a rattle.
Week 2: Paint on underglaze and glaze to add color and designs to your pumpkins.

Please make sure you can come to both sessions to complete your pumpkins.

Get into the festive spirit in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. This is perfect for a personalized gift or decoration.

Your clay creation will need another firing in the kiln and will be ready to pick up in 4 – 7 days.  Please claim your work within 14 days.
