Aluminum Casting Session
Explore the metal casting process at the Carrie Blast Furnaces!
Join Rivers of Steel to create a unique work of art from aluminum! Using everyday materials, you’ll create a one-sided design in resin-bonded sand—then watch as Rivers of Steel’s foundry crew casts your artwork from molten metal! The Aluminum Casting Session is a great way to try something new. Take a class with a friend. Create a special gift or unique memento to keep. You’ll take your cast aluminum objects home at the end of the workshop.
No prior experience or artistic background necessary!
