You have never built a pumpkin like this before!
Join us in September for The Great Pumpkin Workshop II where you will create your very own papier mache pumpkin over the course of four evenings.
This workshop will teach a variety of papier mache techniques including a new process that has never been made public until now.
Participants will learn everything they need to know about building armatures, mixing paste, working with paper clay and utilizing different painting techniques.
The class is fun, fast paced and chances are good you will make a few new friends during the process. There are only ten seats available for this workshop which allows for a personalized experience.

This year I told myself I was not creating anymore papier mache pumpkins…none, nadda, zip, zero.
As always my plans change during the course of the year…need to be flexible.
First off I will be teaching a papier mache workshop in late September, four sessions teaching the techniques required to make a pumpkin from a trash bag and recycled materials.
I’m working on the course description and details but will tell you that the classes will be offered at Legacy Art Studio and Gallery in Midland, Michigan.
Legacy is a great place with a good vibe, check them out if you live in the Midland area, you can also check them out on Facebook.
The second reason I’m making more pumpkins is that I’ve had requests for more tortured pumpkins…so I’ve got about 20 in the works that will be offered in my Etsy Shop in a few weeks.
And finally I will be making two more pumpkins for the winners of the “Build Me A Pumpkin” contest held on my STOLLOWEEN Facebook page.
You can find the details on www.torturedpumpkins.com .
Stay tuned for information on the upcoming workshop.
