Pumpkin carving

Pumpkins like you have never seen before! the envy of your neighbours...

and enjoy an altogether unique afternoon


3D pumpkin carving uses traditional reductive sculpting techniques to produce life-like faces and personalities.

Using a range of clay ribbon tools, knives & abrasive pads, you will learn to sculpt characterful three dimensional faces based on portrait references, be it a family member, a well known personality or just a figment of your imagination.

Your faces will age from day to day, wrinkling or contorting like impermanent gargoyles. Embrace the fleeting presence of your pumpkin companion, or choose to preserve it for posterity. The brief life of your masterpiece adds to the charm of the experience.
