The University Art Gallery (UAG) is partnering with Rivers of Steel Arts to offer a Hot Metal Happening for the public featuring a free, drop-in aluminum casting workshop. Get hands-on and carve your own unique design into a customizable scratch mold. Then watch as the skilled foundry team casts each design in molten aluminum reaching 1200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Scratch mold workshops are fun for all ages and require no prior experience but Rivers of Steel Arts technicians are always close by to help you achieve the best final product.
The UAG will be open 12-4pm. Food, refreshments and prizes!
