Scratch Block Workshop
Carve your own tile mold (scratch block) to be cast in iron during the 6th Annual Iron Pour in Durham Central Park on November 5th!
You will receive 1 single 6” x 6” blank tile mold (a block of resin-bonded sand; “scratch block”) into which you can carve any shallow-relief design you so wish. On average the scratch blocks take about an hour to carve, depending on your design. There is no experience necessary, nor any need to bring your own safety gear. We will provide instruction, safety gear, tools, and materials in this workshop, after which you will leave your mold with the Liberty Arts team until the Iron Pour event on November 5th. Cost per individual is $50. Multiple scratch blocks will require multiple registrations, as we must keep track of each block. You can use the same name for each if you wish.
The class will be held outdoors and masks are reccomended.
The Iron Pour
On the evening of November 5th, Liberty Arts will cast your molds in iron for you to take home the following day. The 6th Annual Iron Pour in Durham Central Park will have live music, local craft beer, a slate of food trucks, performances, and - of course - molten cast iron! The Pour is an entirely public event, free to attend, so please come and enjoy!
PICKUP for the finished iron cast tiles, pick up date and time will be updated in this class description and on our website at the Watts Hill Pavilion.
