The Spring Iron Melt is almost here. We need volunteers to help make the sand molds to be carved – the dates are on Saturdays 3/26, 4/2 and 4/9 from 10-2 at the Studio. Then, we need volunteers to pass out the molds, receive the molds and then to return the cast iron tiles to the participants. This happens down at the AIA Welcome Center (formerly the Big Bear Lodge) on Thursdays and Saturdays from 10-2. The dates for this are: April 21 & 23, April 28 & 30, May 5th, May 12th & 14th. Please email your availability and any questions to
