Winston-Salem’s very first Iron Pour as part of MIXXER’s

Month of Metal

An entire month of classes devoted to metalcraft. Learn to make things in steel, aluminum, iron, and copper. We’re offering classes for beginners and for serious artisans and crafters. Be sure to mark your calendar for Saturday, September 28 at 7 pm for the finale of MIXXER’s Month of Metal, a spectacular light show when we tap the furnace and the iron starts pouring.
