Get creative this Halloween

You are never too old for trick or treating so we are launching the Sloop Studios inaugural pumpkin carving competition! The most creative pumpkin could grab more than just sweets.


Open to all ages

Don’t let children have all the fun! This competition is open to all ages so get your creative pumpkin juices flowing! The only limit is your imagination… and maybe the size of the pumpkin.



Bring your carved pumpkins to the Sloop Studios and hand them in to either Debbie in the glass studio or Michele at Oshun Oxtra. Entries can be brought in between 10am and 5pm,  Monday and Tuesday 29th and 30th of October, or from 10am to 2pm on Wednesday 31st October.


A spooky evening at the Sloop Studios

Join the resident artists and makers of the Sloop Studios this All Hallows’ Eve. Studios will stay open into the evening and may have a few extra treats in store.

All pumpkins will be displayed around the studio courtyard for all to see. Our artists will collectively be judging your handiwork on Wednesday afternoon and the winners will be announced at 6pm so make sure you’re there! Fancy dress optional but always welcome.

Pumpkins will be available to take home again afterwards or collected the next day.
