PUmpkin carving + soldering + Tape hands!


In this one day workshop we will create a carved pumpkin using a surface carving method which allows for finely detailed designs to be made. We will also solder a custom Mindful Makers PCB with a flickering candle LED which can be used to illuminate the carved pumpkin.


We will be practicing our carving skills with a linoleum cutting tool to create a design in the flesh of a pumpkin - just in time for Halloween! This is a great project to practice fine motor skills and control with a sharp hand tool.

We will have a variety of patterns to choose from, or sketch your own design for a one-of-a-kind work of art! 

As an extra added bonus, we’ll also be making ghost hand sculptures from clear tape for a fun DIY Halloween decoration. You can preview the project with Agnes’ tutorial here.
