Pumpkin Head: The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM) Studio has been immersed in a world of pumpkin heads and black-and-white trompe l'oeil as they create the collaborative costumes and sets for current Artists-in-Residence Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley's exhibition, Blood Moon, opening on September 24, 2021. Join us for a behind-the-scenes tour of our studio for insights into the collaborative and experimental processes involved in screenprinting patterns, trompe l'oeil painting Zoom parties, and molding pumpkin heads. Then, head to our print studio to create your own screenprinted totebag with glow-in-the-dark ink for Halloween treats and all your nighttime adventures!
