THE SUN POUR 2019

SATURDAY, JUNE 22

BronzeAge & Nordic Iron host a celebration to welcome the beginning of Summer- the Summer Solstice- with a molten iron experience. Join us for a day of creation, and an evening of celebration and community.

CREATION

Sat, Jun 22,  between 9:00am-noon    All ages are welcome to create a design in sand (scratch tile) on one of these two workshop dates. It’s fun, simple and takes about 45 minutes to one hour. Then, watch your scratch tile filled with molten iron at The Sun Pour that evening. Reserve a scratch block in advance because we have a limited number available! You or your whole family will have a cast iron creation from the pour.  Please call, email or Facebook message us for more info about making and reserving a scratch block. $35 fee per scratch block (already includes sales tax).

CELEBRATION

Sat, Jun 22, after 7:00pm. Specific time frame to be announced.   Bring a lawn chair to enjoy an outdoor iron pour and spectacular performance pours. The pour team will be pouring iron every 15 minutes over about a two hour window.  FREE and open to the public.

COMMUNITY

Jun 15 + 16, 2019   Really want to get involved in the experience? Participate in Sand Mold Workshops offered the weekend before the iron pour. Opportunity to make something in iron and be part of the team that makes the molten metal happen.  Jordan Eaton of Nordic Iron will teach you how to make a two-part sand mold. Intermediate-level workshop also offered that weekend.
