October 29 > CNC Pumpkin Carving Workshop + After Party > Highland Park

For a special pre-Halloween event, de LaB is heading to Knowhow Shop LA, the awesome DIY workspace in Highland Park, for an afternoon of CNC pumpkin carving, followed by a ghoulish after party!

For this seasonally-spiked workshop, all that's required is that you bring your own pumpkin (round, non-heirloom varieties preferred). In exchange, Knowhow Shop will be using their digital fabrication equipment (think CNC router, laser cutter and engraver) to help us create architecturally patterned Jack-O'-Lantern sconces. The afternoon will culminate in drinking, music by Paul Grain and prizes for either best costumes (that's right, come dressed to impress), or best Jack-O'-Lantern sconce!

Knowhow Shop LA is a collaborative workspace and design studio providing tools and expertise to design practices, professionals and enthusiasts. Founded by architects Joshua Howell, Justin Rice and Kagan Taylor, Knowhow Shop is now run by Justin and Kagan, whose design agenda stems from their crafts-person's sensitivity, genuine good humor, feral strangeness, and belief that what they make can redirect their discipline from the hyper-digital to the real-surreal.
