Pimp Your Pumpkins – Painting workshop hosted by The Loft, Battle

As autumn is in full swing and Halloween on its way thoughts turn to pumpkin carving, whether it’s to display in your window, on your doorstep or to take trick or treating, why not try a new form of pumpkin decorating with paint? This year’s trend for displaying your pumpkin creativity through paint, rather than carving, is a great way to get stuck in with friends and family to produce a pumpkin which’ll be the talk of the neighbourhood!
