Alabama Art Casting is a nonprofit arts and education organization devoted to the collection and preservation of traditional and modern methods of pattern making, mold making and iron casting processes. They have been in operation at Tannehill Historic Ironworks State Park near Birmingham,Al. since 1999.
Those who participate in our demonstrations not only learn the technical aspects, but also create a small artwork to keep. The demonstrations are educational, fun and inspiring! Iron pouring is historically significant in the industrial, economic and cultural development of Alabama.
Past activities include demonstrations and workshops at events such as the Magic City Art Connection in Birmingham, Alabama, the Montgomery Museum of Fine Art’s FLIMP festival, the Sucarnochee River Folklife Festival in Livingston, Alabama, numerous ABANA sponsored artist blacksmith events as well as the International Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art and the Soule’ Live Steam Festival in Meridian, Mississippi.
