Gather + Create: Velvet Pumpkin Workshop

  • Park Winters 27850 County Road 26 Winters, CA, 95694 United States (map)

Come join us for a delightful afternoon learning the art of making beautiful fabric pumpkins from master fabricator Valerie Frese! These beautiful pumpkins are wonderful for decoration, or gifts for friends and family. In this workshop, you will learn how to choose the right fabrics and colors, as well as a variety of methods to give each pumpkin its own character. You will leave with 3 pumpkins (small, medium and large) as well as some velvet acorns!

Tickets are $95/person and include materials, as well as complimentary coffee & tea service. This intimate workshop will take place in the Old Barn at the Farm at Park Winters.


I have been a fabricator for the home decor industry for the past 30 years, but my passions are crafting, cooking and gardening. About 12 years ago, my dear friend gave me the most beautiful tiny velvet pumpkin. It was love at first sight, and I immediately got to work creating my very own. I even make collections out of the scraps from each client project, and give them as thank you gift with the job is finished. It’s so special to give a gift that fits just perfectly in my clients’ homes!

The Gather + Create workshop series provides a platform for creative professionals and artists to share, and teach, their passion with others. If you would like to partner with us to host a workshop, please email
