When we acquired the second lab space for KWARTZLAB, there wasn’t much lighting or electricity in the space. Ed Maste and I have been working on getting that all up and running. As of last night, we have upgraded the lighting for the space, and it’s looking quite bright in the Shop now, as it should be.

As you all should be aware, KwartzLab (in kind co-operation with THEMUSEUM, and the generous sponsorship of the KWAwesome Fund) is hosting Hacky Hallowe’en, a carving-soldering-hacking skills workshop, on Saturday October 29. As part of this workshop, we’ll be teaching you (yes, YOU!) how to safely carve intricate designs into a pumpkin. Of course, in order to pass this wisdom down, some of us ‘Labbers first needed to learn the skill ourselves.
KwartzLab friend and pumpkin carving guru, Jeff-o, held such a workshop for us on Wednesday evening. And as a graduate of the kitchen knife & stitches school of pumpkin carving, I was first in line! I’ll share some of the tips we learned after Hacky Hallowe’en. In the meantime, however, you can take a peek at our technique!

Awesome-looking pumpkins, that don't require blood sacrifice.
