Iron Pour

You’re not just invited to watch, you’re also invited to make your own art!

Join us as a team of professional sculpture artists conduct an iron pour demonstration, heating up 500 pounds of iron to 3,000 degrees. Then, when the iron is white hot, the team will pour it into molds made during one of our scratch mold workshops. The furnace will roar, crackle, flame, and spark with power and excitement!

It’s free to watch the iron pour, but if you would like to participate and make your own iron artwork, then you need to attend one of our eight scratch mold workshops. Here, you’ll scratch unique designs into an 8-inch sand mold that will be cast with molten iron during the event.

Ticket Information

Free to watch.

To participate, sign up for one of our ten scratch mold workshops.
