Pumpkin Carving Lessons, Corfe Castle, Dorset

Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th October 2019
10am – 4pm

£55 for 1 day | £95 for 2 days (save £15)

In 2012 I carved my first pumpkin face, and I haven’t looked back since. Every year I look forward to autumn, because it means that in September I will be able to start carving the first pumpkins of the year.

At this Halloween workshop, in Dorset, I will be showing students how to carve a basic pumpkin face, similar to the ones in the photos on this page.

Come along for one or two days. If it’s two days you can either complete your carving from Day 1, or start a new one. 

The venue is Sandy Hill Studios, Sandy Hill Lane, Corfe Castle, Dorset BH20 5JF.

I will provide the pumpkins and the tools and you just need to bring enthusiasm and your lunch with you! Also to also wear old clothes as pumpkin carving is messy! 

Sorry, but the pumpkin carving lessons will only be for adults, as sharp instruments, craft knives etc. and children don’t go well together! 

I’m running the classes alongside local stone carver Jonathan Sells, who will be running his own Halloween themed stone carving lessons on both days.


Below you can see a few of the pumpkins and gourds I’ve carved over the last few years.
