Explore the metal casting process at the Carrie Blast Furnaces!
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.
Aluminum Casting Sessions are offered on April 11, May 9, June 6, July 18, August 29, & October 24, 2022 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
*Workshops are limited to 20 participants. We recommend purchasing tickets in advance.
