Clay Pumpkin Patch

Clay Pumpkin Patch

Presented by Union Project at Union Project

Come pick your own ceramic pumpkin and then carve it into a jack-o-lantern!

Hollow clay pumpkin forms are individually hand-made 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 two weeks later, it will be a permanent jack-o-lantern, safe for inside and outside use.

This is a drop-in registration. Advanced registration is required to secure your pumpkin, but you may drop in anytime between 1pm and 3pm to carve. Each registration is for one pumpkin.

Union Project is committed to being accessible to all. The building is wheelchair accessible via the side door on Stanton Avenue, and an accessible parking spot is located just outside that door. Service animals are always welcome, and ASL interpretation can be provided on request. Please let us know what accommodations we can make to ensure your experience is positive, contact Michelle Clesse at 412-363-4550 or michelle@unionproject.org if you have specific accommodations or needs. ⁠
