11:00 AM  –  7:00 PM

The workshop features extended shop time onsite at the Carrie Blast Furnaces and in-depth instruction / assistance catered to the needs of each individual. Participants will have the chance to learn and experiment with multiple pattern-making materials and create multiple large and complex multi-part sand molds.

Prior experience or Intro to Iron Casting is recommended. Registration includes access to the Carrie Furnaces foundry daily between 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. and the ultimate experience of participating in an iron pour from a coke fired cupola—just like the historic furnaces onsite!

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.

Weeklong Iron Intensive workshops include up to 400 lbs. of sand and corresponding chemical, waste removal and related foundry consumables. Sand and chemical needs beyond this allotted amount are available for $.30/lb. Any additional material fees must be paid upon pick up of the final castings at the end of the workshop period.
