Embrace your Halloween spirit!

‘Tis the season of pumpkin spice and happy haunts, and Brucemore is partnering with the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio to bring Halloween cheer in this popular workshop! In this class, participants learn to create their own Jack O’ Lantern trinket using various hand-building techniques. Once sculpted, participants can add faces, features, and texture to their pumpkins and paint them with seasonally colored glazes. Finished projects are approximately 4″x4″ inches in size.

Participants will craft and paint their pumpkins at Brucemore. All projects will go back to the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass studio for firing in their kilns. Participants can pick up their Jack O’ Lantern creations from the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio three weeks following the class date, just in time for Trick or Treat!
