Metal Casting Workshops

Get the ultimate Pittsburgh experience and melt some metal in the steel city!  Bring your group to the Carrie Blast Furnaces National Historic Landmark for an aluminum or bronze casting workshop that is sure to get the blood flowing. Participants have the chance to create their own unique design from scratch and learn how to capture that form in an open-faced sand mold.  Then suit up in leathers and help our professional foundry team cast your designs in solid metal. No prior experience is needed!

Custom Carbon

Build your own metal casting experience. Looking for something special?  Tell us what you have in mind and let’s make it happen!

““I enjoyed every single part of the workshop SO MUCH! This was my first visit to the Carrie Furnaces and I loved learning about how Pittsburgh was shaped by the steel industry. I love team building activities where we actually get to build something as a team :D””
