In this Cast Iron Art workshop you will carve your design into a sand/resin mold to create a beautiful cast iron bowl to last for centuries.
This is a multi-session class. In the first session you will learn how to draw your design on the mold and learn about the process of metal casting. You don’t have to fully complete your design in one session, and we will work with you to schedule additional sessions if you need them.
All supplies are included. All you need to bring is your imagination! Our instructor will help you develop a design and show you how to use simple tools to carve your unique design. Your completed mold will be filled with cast iron on Saturday, September 9 during our annual Night of Fire event.
For makers ages 12 and up

Now he is working to support the inner artist and craftsperson in everyone in our community.
