The Pumpkin Soup Tour

A REAL Pottery Workshop!

One hour a week for 4 weeks. Ceramic Handbuilding 101 Workshop with Suzanne

I am bringing my pottery studio to the Finnish American Kindergartens

in Töölö 1 and 2:  4 Wednesday mornings beginning August 24- September 14.

in Ruoholahti : 4 Thursday afternoons beginning August 25- September 15.

Using the book Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper as inspiration, we will make a big orange pumpkin using the clay coil technique. Each child will then get to make one to three characters from the book. There is a cat, a squirrel, and a little white duck. We will glaze and underglaze the items during the last week. The big pumpkins and friends will be delivered to the kindergarten two weeks after the completion of the workshop.

Here is the schedule of fun: We will read and examine the book for inspiration each week.

Day 1: Using snakelike coils we will make TWO bowls.
Day 2: Then we will turn them into a clay balloon! Shaping it into a pumpkin, and adding the stem.
Day 3: We will make one to three characters from the book.
Day 4: We will glaze and underglaze everything we have made.

Projects will be ready for pick up at school two weeks after workshop.
