Pumpkin carving puts students in the Hallowe’en spirit

The hardest part of teaching pumpkin carving is getting students not to start by cutting off the top and scooping out the seeds, says Dick Wood.

The artist was in the CAW Student Centre on Wednesday, offering lessons in relief carving techniques. His appearance was sponsored by the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance.

Wood, based in LaSalle, is a resident artist with the Windsor Wood Carving Museum. He first started carving pumpkins five years ago.

“It’s definitely a seasonal job,” he says.
