Lynden Sculpture Garden Iron Pour
Join professionals, students, and enthusiasts from across the region in the dramatic spectacle of molten cast iron. Lynden’s first iron pour brings together some of the Midwest’s best cast iron artists for a day of workshops and demonstrations. Spectators welcome, but those who want to participate more actively can register for one of the scratch tile workshops (info below)—then watch as your creation gets poured and take your one-of-a-kind cast iron artwork home with you. Or feel free to drop in and watch the process. Workshops run from 11 am to 2 pm; pour begins at 3 pm.
This iron pour is made possible, in part, through the generosity of Carhartt, Crucible Foundry in Neenah, and the UWM Women’s Resource Center.
Lynden Sculpture Garden Iron Pour: Scratch Tile Workshops
Come take an active part in Lynden’s first iron pour by creating a scratch tile. Choose a large (5 x 5 in.) or small (3.5 x 3.5 in) tile, and when the pour begins at 3 pm, watch as your creation gets poured and take your one-of-a-kind cast iron artwork home with you. Drop in between 11 am and 2 pm to make your tile (it takes approximately half an hour), and then watch the preparations before the pour begins at 3 pm. Suitable for ages 8 and up. Register online or by phone at 414-446-8794.
