Hot Metal Happening

Saturday, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Stop by for a free Aluminum Casting Workshop!

Join Rivers of Steel Arts  for a Hot Metal Happening at the University Art Gallery. Stop by for a free aluminum casting workshop. Get hands-on and carve your own unique design into a customizable scratch mold. Then watch as the skilled foundry team casts each design in molten aluminum reaching 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. Scratch mold workshops are fun for all ages and require no prior experience.  Rivers of Steel Arts technicians are always close by to help you achieve the best final product.

This workshop is offered in conjunction with the exhibition Metal from Clay: Pittsburgh’s Aluminum Stories, on view in the University Art Gallery through December 6, 2019. Tours of the exhibition, along with snacks and refreshments, will be offered for free throughout the afternoon of the event.
