Pumpkin Painting Workshop

Bring the whole family (or stop by if you're just a kid at heart) and join us for a Pumpkin Painting Workshop this half term! As you enter our lounge on 5 Fitzroy Street, we'll get to know one another as we explore the history of the Jack O Lantern - where on earth did this tradition come from? What did it mean to the people who started carving faces into turnips and pumpkins and setting them ablaze? Then Together Culture Co Founder and Artist, Ellie Breeze, will work with you to develop your painting skills or adapt them to the canvas of the pumpkin. Personify it as a Jack O Lantern - or maybe go completely conceptual and develop a new way of expressing meaning on a pumpkin canvas. Please bring your own pumpkin. They can be purchased from Waitrose directly across the street from Together Culture on Fitzroy or at Graham's Fruit and Veg stall, directly in front of Together Culture.

About Together Culture’s Lifting the Veil Festival 

October has long been a time of year when humans pause and acknowledge the mystery of transition. It’s a vibrant season, when past and present converge and we gather together as a community to celebrate who we are in relation to the rest of the natural world.  This October, we hope you’ll join Together Culture as we ‘Lift the Veil’ to our past to explore how people who lived in Cambridgeshire centuries before have come to shape our culture as we explore the meaning behind the autumnal rituals we treasure.  Along the way, we’ll experiment with how culture helps us to live our values, how communities are formed, and in our Citizen’s Studio we’ll be collaborating to answer the question: What is a creative community and what is its potential to create a more inclusive and vibrant Cambridge?
