In this 3-hour workshop, visiting artist Brian Glaze will review the process of cupola iron casting and the materials needed. Then he'll walk you through creating an open-face mold and preparing it for the Iron Pour. Come back after sunset to watch your mold filled with 2,900°F+ melted iron at GoggleWorks' first Iron Pour Event, co-presented with Albright College.
