Want to get some tips on carving an outstanding pumpkin just in time for Hallowe’en?

On Saturday, Oct. 22 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. you might just get that chance.

David Ducharme is a sculptor who lives in the Slocan Valley but travels the world pursuing his art.

He has attended festivals, exhibitions and special events carving incredibly detailed pieces set in sand/snow and ice.

For the last couple of years he has added the squash family into his catalogue.

“Pumpkins can be a very pliable surface for self expression and are fun to work with,” said Ducharme. He’ll be sharing his talents with whoever wants to drop into the Sleep is For Sissies in Winlaw.

This program is perfect for all ages. There’ll be some sculpting tools available to work with, but those wishing to carve are encouraged to bring some of their own along as well. They should also bring a pumpkin and newspaper as well.

There is no charge for this event other than a donation to the Slocan Food Bank and the desire to have a great time.

For more information please contact Slocan Valley Recreation at 250-226-0008.
