2017 Pour'n Yer Heart Out
A Community Iron Pour
Free and open to the spectating public, this indoor/outdoor winter event collaborates with some of the Midwest's best artists, makers and local businesses in order to melt and cast hot iron all day during the region's cold weather season.
Meet a rock star crew of Midwestern metal casting artists as they create unique iron castings while everyone enjoys music, culinary offerings from Madison's best food trucks, local beer tastings, and of course endless amusement inside the awesomeness of Sector67, where this whole shee-bang takes place.
For those adventurous people out there, we even offer an opportunity to make something of your own, and have it cast in molten iron. We have a few different sand mould making workshops around Madison leading up to the event, where you can create a custom design and watch it get poured in iron at the pour. To learn more about how to get involved, check out our 2017 Workshops page and jump on the sign up list before all those sandy seats are gone!
For those who aren't the workshop type, we also have plenty of different shaped blank sand moulds that you can purchase and work on at your leisure anytime before the day of the pour. To see what that's all about, hop on over to our 2017 Scratch Moulds page to scope out the options and place your order for these hot little items.
Our Tips & Tricks page helps you navigate what to do while you work it out at home, and provides more insight into some of the limits and opportunities within the sand mould carving experience.
We can't wait to meet you outside this year as we work our little leather jackets off to melt metal in the dead of winter together. It will be hot, heavy and fun, as always!
