Join Rivers of Steel Arts for a week long iron-casting workshop at the Carrie Furnaces National Historic Landmark. This workshop is perfect for iron enthusiasts looking for extended working time on site or those with limited prior experience looking to hone their existing skills. All experience levels are welcome and encouraged to participate!
The workshop features extended shop time on site and in-depth instruction and/or assistance catered to the needs of each individual. Participants will have the chance to learn and experiment with multiple pattern-making materials and create complex multi-part sand molds. Registration includes access to the Carrie Furnaces foundry daily between 8am – 8pm and the ultimate experience of participating in an iron pour from a coke fired cupola—just like the historic furnaces on site!
Foundry 1 workshops include up to 250lbs of sand and corresponding chemical. Weeklong intensive workshops include up to 500lbs of sand and corresponding chemical. Sand and chemical needs beyond this allotted amount are available for $.25/lbs. Waste removal and foundry consumables are included in this price.
