Iron casting is a community workshop experience! Intro to Iron participants work with experienced Rivers of Steel teaching artists to learn the basics of foundry work and an overview of the iron casting process step by step. No prior experience necessary. This 3-day workshop covers multi-part mold and pattern design, lost wax casting, resin-bonded sand molds, and iron smelting. The course results in your own unique design cast in solid iron!

All items for the workshop will be cast on Saturday (June 26 & Sept 18, 2021) 11 – 7 p.m. Cooled castings can be picked up on the following Sunday between 10 a.m. – 3.p.m.

Intro to Iron workshops include up to 250 lbs. of sand and corresponding chemical. Sand and chemical needs beyond this allotted amount are available for $.30/lb. Waste removal and foundry consumables are included in this price.
