Location: Van Lennep Auditorium
Cost: $50, with a 20% discount for CBMM members
Participants are invited to enjoy two beverages and light hors d’oeuvres while carving their own unique designs and learning about the processes involved in casting iron by creating relief carvings into a resin-bonded sand mold. These carvings become the vessel in which molten iron will be poured during a live iron demonstration in the Shipyard on Saturday, March 7. Guests are invited back to CBMM on Saturday, March 7, to watch these designs and other student work being poured during the live demonstration. Once these cast designs have cooled and cleaned, participants can take home their pieces. Pick up of these pieces, unless otherwise arranged, will be any time after 1pm Sunday, March 8, during museum hours.
