Fire Camp At Steel Yard

(6.23) Experience the magic of the industrial arts first hand. This Saturday the Steel Yard will be hosting its 6th Annual Fire Camp: Festival of the Fire Arts.

Fire Camp goers will witness live demonstrations of torch cutting, wheel throwing (how pottery is made!), blacksmithing, jewelry making, and iron pouring, in addition to getting their hands dirty and walking through our studio tours!
But that’s not all — guests get to take a little bit of the Yard home by purchasing customizable iron relief tiles, steel plates, or Raku pots. Sand molds allow guests to carve out their own designs, watch as molten iron is poured into the molds and then get go take home the decorative cast iron relief. Designing the steel plate is similar — guests draw their design and then watch as the art is brought to life with plasma cutting & welding.  Last but not least, guests can purchase and paint with lustrous glazes their own raku fired pots.
Fire Camp also features a Yardie garage sale where you can purchase unique items and tools directly from the studio, as well as a Yardie Art Faire featuring ceramics, jewelry, and crafts from local artists and makers.
Rain or shine. Beverages and food by Revival Brewing Co., Picnic, and other local vendors. And DJ music.

Free, 3pm to 8pm, Saturday, June 23, Steel Yard, 27 Sims Avenue, (directions)
