stART The New Year Right
Create Your Own Sculpture In Molten Aluminum!
Carolina Bronze Sculpture and Billingsley Atelier are hosting a scratch block workshop and aluminum pour along with an Open House at the foundry in Seagrove, NC, as part of the stART’18 New Year’s celebration. stART’18 – the International Celebration of Contemporary Sculpture is an world wide event sponsored by the Sculpture Network and is designed to celebrate and promote sculpture. Whether museum, studio, gallery or work space, throughout the world, various art-oriented hosts are opening their doors for all types of sculpture enthusiasts. Join us on Sunday, January 28 from 11am-4pm.
Create your own design by scratching into prepared sand molds, then watch as our staff pours molten aluminum into your mold. It is cool and ready to take home within one hour. While you are visiting, be sure to walk through NC’s newest sculpture garden, home to over 18 sculptures installed around a beautiful pond. And don’t forget to take a foundry tour to see how bronze sculpture is made. Champagne will be available for the traditional New Year’s toast at 1pm.
Sand molds are $30 per block and all tools and metal will be provided. Bring your own sand molds and have them poured for the cost of the metal. Molds can be carved from 11-3pm and will be poured at 3pm.
Please RSVP if you plan on creating or bringing a sand mold to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The sculpture garden will be open for tours on your own. We have an audio tour available at uniguide.me. If you are interested in learning about the sculptures and many of the plants in the garden, download the app to your phone and type in Carolina Bronze.
The foundry will also be open for free guided tours. We are currently working on several large scale sculptures! Please wear closed toe shoes for your safety and keep small children close. The foundry tour takes approximately 45 minutes.
