Pickled People

I first learnt how to make these weirdities because my mum was a teacher. One day she came home from school with a bottle of pickled people she’d bought from a parent, at the school fair. We all thought they were brilliant, so we started making them too. It became a bit of a craze.

Recently I was working on a puppet character, using stuffed tights for the head and I suddenly realised I had everything I needed to show my own kids the joys of human pickling! How could I resist? I only had tan tights, so we’ll be sourcing a more diverse spectrum for our next batch. I’ll take some photos as a guide, just in case anyone out there feels the urge to join in.
