Pumpkin Tour goes to Kamppi!


A REAL Pottery Workshop!

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

On October 27 – November 17 and November 24 – December 15.

I will be bringing my pottery studio to the Finnish American Kindergarten in Kamppi for your children to participate in a real ceramics class.

pumpkin soup

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:

Day 1: Using snakelike coils we will make TWO bowls.
Day 2: Then we will turn them into a clay balloon, shape it into a pumpkin, and add the stem.
Day 3: We will make 1-3 characters from the book.
Day 4: We will glaze and underglaze what we made.

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

Cost: 58€
