“Anyone of any age can have fun with this. Scratching a design into the mold is a simple process, but can yield really great results.,” says PenArt Executive Director Cathy Hoke. “I’ve been lucky enough to work with Teresa since we began this event, even helping to pour the iron. I am still awed by watching the molten metal pour out of the furnace at dusk on a fall evening.”
From 4:30-7pm, Door County’s Cathy Grier Trio, will provide live entertainment. Participants can enjoy a dinner of pulled pork sandwiches and sides for $6, sponsored by the AC Tap. Seasonal refreshments will be provided by event sponsor Lautenbach’s Orchard Country Winery & Market. Additional beverages will be available for purchase.
At dusk, around 6:30pm, the dramatic pour of white-hot, molten iron begins, continuing until all the tiles are poured. Tiles will be cool enough for participants to take home that evening or may be picked up on Sunday morning. Proceeds from the event benefit the community art education programs at Peninsula School of Art.
No reservations are needed for the Community Iron Pour and there are no tile presales. Donations are taken at the door the day of the event.
