Iron Pour Crowd

The day begins with a gathering of the local blacksmith’s association. These artisans will share their process for super heating and hammering steel into delicate ornate patterns. Experience the brute force and delicate touch necessary to make this amazing work.

Finally, cap off an amazing evening right, with an exciting display as 2,000 pounds of iron is heated to 3,000 degrees and the molten metal is tapped for pouring.

Child At Iron Pour

This year’s event features even more activities beyond metalworking, including hands-on activities for kids and adults, live music, food trucks from Munchiez and Bapanada, craft beers by Saucony Creek, and desserts from Sugar & Sweets by Ami.

The first fifty curious participants will have the opportunity to purchase and prepare their own mold to be later cast in molten iron.

Join us as we celebrate this amazing feat of strength with the Reading Community.

Register for the enamel pendant workshops and pewter pour workshops below.
(Scratch molds must be purchased in-person day of the event for $25.)
