Sand Mold Carving Workshop

at Cambridge Wood Fired Pottery

Saturday, July 13th 2019, 11am-2pm

Join us outside in beautiful Cambridge Wisconsin, on the property of the inspired Cambridge Wood Fired Pottery studio, to work out your designs onto blank sand molds in preparation for the 2019 Midwest Fire Fest iron pour.


Intermediate Sand Mold Workshop

at FeLion Studios

Sunday July 14 2019, 10am-7pm (break for lunch included)

Sunday, July 21 2019, 10am-7pm (break for lunch included)

This class is not for the faint of heart.

Take your cast iron sculpture game to a new level this year by starting in oil clay and ending with an incredibly detailed relief sculpture made in iron at Midwest Fire Fest. We will deep-dive into the sand mold making process by letting you mix and pack your own sand mold around the clay creation you make during the first part of the day. Get your hands dirty and be prepared to get inspired by making something unimaginably unique from your own hands.


Take-Home Sand Molds

Pickup at FeLion Studios

Mondays & Wednesdays

11am-4pm

Available until July 26, 2019

If you are more DIY and need to be flexible with your work time, come to the studio to pickup a blank, pre-made sand mold to take home and work on at your leisure. Molds are square or star shaped. Instructions to carve found on our Tips & Tricks page. Bring back your finished carved mold to the Midwest Fire Fest event on July 27th, or drop back off at FeLion Studios on same dates for pickup.


Day-of Sand Mold Workshop

at Midwest Fire Fest Iron Pour

July 27, 2019 from 11am-3pm

This is your last-ditch effort to get in on the merry making at the iron pour during Midwest Fire Fest. Come to our big tent and hunker down that day to bust out your design onto one of the remaining pre-made blank sand molds available on site. First come first serve while supplies last.
