Event Description

Rivers of Steel Arts (RoSA) is seeking participants 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 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM and the ultimate experience of participating in an iron pour from a coke fired cupola - just like the historic furnaces on site!

Week long intensive workshops include up to 500 lbs. of sand and corresponding chemical. Sand and chemical needs beyond this allotted amount are available at $.25/lb. 

Cost: $400

Length: Monday - Saturday

Time: 8:00 am - 8:00 pm daily
