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 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!
