Clay Pumpkin Patch
Event Dates and Times:
October 8 (1:00 pm - 4:00 pm)
Age Level: 5 and up
Experience Level: All levels
Come pick your own ceramic pumpkin and then carve it into a jack-o-lantern!
Hollow clay pumpkin forms are individually handmade by one of our artist members for you to come and carve – just like a real pumpkin! They will be in the “leather-hard” state, meaning that they are firm to the touch yet soft enough to be carved with a knife. After being carved, the pumpkin will be dried and fired in our kiln to almost 2000 degrees. When you pick it up three weeks later, it will be a permanent jack-o-lantern, safe for inside and outside use.
Advanced registration is required to secure your pumpkin.
Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Each registration includes clay, tools, glaze, and firing costs for one participant. No outside clay or glazes permitted.
