Creating Your Own Iron Cast in Door County

Take a trip to Door County this fall and join the Iron Pour Benefit on October 6, 2012. This event allows participants to design their own iron mold creation. The process begins as participants etch into a sand-and-resin mold. At dusk there is fun music, refreshments, and of course the blazing hot iron tiles being created. The iron is recycled, heated to 2000ºF, and poured into each hand crafted mold. The entire process is made possible by students at the Peninsula School of Art.

Creating the mold is enjoyable for all ages.

Watch the fantastic show as each hand crafted mold is filed with blazing hot iron.

Vacation cottages in Fish Creek, WI are cozy and near great attractions. This September, visit some the great locations in Door County and check out the iron casting event in Fish Creek.
