Pumpkin Carving

Details

On the eve of All Hallows, when the witches are zooming about on their brooms and the ghosts are ghouling abroad, there will be a chance for all young Hallowe’eners to learn how to make their own pumpkin lantern. Under the expert guidance of Lowther resident artist Kelly Gimson, children over the age of 4 can take part in a one-hour workshop, learn carving and stencilling and at the end of the session, take home a beautiful, hand-crafted, candle-lit pumpkin.

Pumpkins, stencils, tools and candle provided
