Here it is!! Our annual Pour'n Yer Heart Out community iron pour is rounding into its 8th year here in Madison, Wisconsin, and we couldn't be more thrilled about this one!
Happening again on the parking lot at Sector67, this year will be special as we melt 2,000 lbs of cast iron bath tubs, radiators and what not for the *LAST TIME* at this location, before Sector67 prepares to move to their new permanent home just a few blocks away later this summer.
Be here to be part of an epic melt-down and menagerie of artisans, DIY'ers and makers of all sorts, as we all throw down and celebrate the hot stuff cookin' into our sand moulds lined up outside.
View this event for more info on how to get in on the action and make your own iron creation for this year's hot & heavy event.
Pour'n Yer Heart Out is going on it's 7th year of mid-winter iron melting, and this next one is happening on February 6th 2016 from Noon-6pm, at Sector67 in Madison, as per usual.
Free and open to the public, we collaborate with some of Madison's best makers and businesses to throw down one of the coldest weathered, hottest iron pour events of the year. Celebrating every sparkling minute of it, we'll enjoy live music, glorious fire-side dutch oven food, local beer tastings, and of course the spectacle watching a rock-star crew of Midwestern metal artists working their little leather jackets off to melt metal in the dead of winter together. It will be fun as always!
"Pour'n Yer Heart Out"
Happening on February 7th 2015 from Noon-6pm, this year's pour might be our biggest event yet ! With the help of many amazing local collaborators, we now have an official After Party celebration to follow the day's iron pouring event. We will feature art by the participating artist's own inspirations, live music and a 6-tap take-over lead by official beer sponsor MobCraft Beer. So much going on that day, we may just forget that it's even the dead of winter altogether !
New to the schedule this year is the introduction of three individual sand mould making workshops leading up to the event. Workshops are open to the public and held January 30-February 1st, 2015. Get more info and pre-register here:
