Event Overview

It's that time of year again to get out carving tools and mutilate some gourds in this hands-on craft activity class. A favorite and popular fall class before Halloween, each student is provided their own pumpkin as a working canvas to create their own masterpiece. Stencils, free drawings, and tools are provided to hack up an artistic marvel. Save the guts because the class will prepare and bake the salvaged seeds to enjoy in class. Beginners and Experienced carvers are welcome, but truly it's a fun past time to share, get a little knowledge about the history of carving, how to preserve your art, and take home something to display. Kids are welcome!


If a specific date is sold out, we may accommodate more folks or add an additional class. Holidays, Private Parties, or Large Groups (9+), have a surge in price. A virtual class is available to book. Contact: Click the "Message Host" button below.
