Pinched Pumpkins with Lauren Swan

Pinched Pumpkins (beginner) – Lauren Swan
Hand Building
Day Course

08/10 between 10:00 – 13:00

It’s almost the season of trick or treating – why not treat yourself to a space in this hand building workshop where you can pinch your very own pumpkin (not out of someone’s garden, but out of a ball of clay!).

Using the ancient pinch pot technique and a variety of tools, we’ll pinch, sculpt and carve a selection of pumpkins. You can add twirling stems, leaves and even carve or paint a spooky design. Our selection of slips and underglazes can be used to colour your pumpkins

Once made, we’ll move all pumpkins to the kiln room to be fired at 1000’C, ready for our technicians to dip them in a transparent glaze. They’ll then be put into the kiln for their final firing where they’ll reach temperatures as high as 1220’c. Once glaze fired, your pumpkins will be ready to come home with you in time for halloween!
