Liberty Arts Studios & Foundry and Durham Central Park present their 4th annual public Iron Pour at Durham Central Park, Saturday, November 16 from 4-9 p.m. All evening and into the night, 4,000 pounds of molten iron will be poured into molds, in an exciting fiery display creating the iron tiles made by the public and sculptures made by NC artists. Additionally, there will be Liberty Arts artists’ work for sale, Liberty Arts T-shirts, beer glasses and hand-blown glass pumpkins. Come enjoy drumming performances from Batalá Durham, local food trucks and craft beer while watching this very creative and gritty Durhamesque event.
Liberty Arts will light the furnace between 3 and 4 p.m.!! The pour starts a little after 4 p.m. Enjoy performances from Batalá Durham, local food trucks Bulkogi, Poblanos Tacos, Gussy’s Greek, Chez Moi, Ponysaurus and Bull City Brewery, while watching this very creative and gritty Durhamesque event.
Fire Artist Lady Goon will perform. You can participate in this upcoming pour by creating your own scratch block and then watching it being poured on the 16th. A scratch block is a 6X6 indentation in a block of hardened sand that you will receive when you sign up for a scratch block class. Liberty Arts will pour the molten iron into your block and you’ll have a beautiful iron tile of your design. You’ll be able to pick it up the next day as it will be TOO hot to take home that night.
