"Fire in the Park"
Liberty Arts Sculpture Studio & Foundry will have an iron pour in Central Park on Friday, November 18 from 2:30pm to 9:00pm. Join us for fun, food trucks, fire spinners, buskers (music) and Fullsteam beer!
Come make your own mold! Workshops will be held at our Foundry on Foster Street across from the Pavilion at Durham Central Park from 10:00-12:00 on Saturday November 12, 5:30-8:30 on Thursday November 17, and 2:30-7:00 on the day of the pour - Friday November 18.
The molds are made during our scratch block (the name for our sand molds) workshop where you are given instruction, a blank mold to carve, and tools to use - just come with an idea! The cost is $30. We will pour 1,500lbs of molten iron at 2,500 degrees into the molds after sunset on the evening of November 18 in an exciting, fiery display. You will be able to take home your iron sculpture that evening once they cool off.
