Workshop July 22nd: Madison, WI Sand Mold Workshop at FeLion Studios
July 22nd, 2018
11am - 1pm
At FeLion Studios LLC
2825 Perry Street Bay #3, Madison Wisconsin
Come visit FeLion Studios headquarters to get started on your sand mould design in preparation for the iron pour at the 3rd annual Midwest Fire Fest on July 28, 2018.
All of the sand moulds created in this workshop will be poured at the 2018 Midwest Fire Fest on Saturday July 28th, between 7-10 pm. We hope you can join us on site during the event to see your carved sand mould get poured in molten iron!
Pre-made square & star shaped sand moulds, carving tools and creative vibes will all be provided onsite and included as part of this special event workshop. The FeLion crew will be on hand to teach attendees the basic rules and techniques for carving into the sand moulds. We will walk through a few examples and ideas that will stir your imagination and help you make a unique design to get cast in iron during the Fire Fest. While we're carving, we can talk about all of your curiosities with iron pouring and get excited for everything else that will be happening at the event this year !
What if I can't make it to the iron pour, can I still do this workshop?
If you are unable to attend the event, never fear. You can still signup for the sand mould carving workshop to carve your design and just arrange to collect your finished iron creation afterward at the Cambridge Wood Fired Pottery the following week. If you have questions before registering for the event, feel free to email Alisa of FeLion Studios for more event info here: Alisa@FeLionStudios.com .
The Midwest Fire Fest Iron Pour is Free & Open to public for spectating. Enjoy the surrounding fun with music, beer, food, and of course, a ton of metal... literally 2,000 lbs,.. poured that day!
