Join our biggest Fundraiser of the Year! The Iron Melt is a creative, interactive way to support the Andres Institute of Art. Gift Certificates for an upcoming Iron Melt make great gifts! If you need a gift certificate to go with your order, please contact President@andresinstitute.org

Pricing is $35 for members and $45 for non-members, select above. Get an annual membership HERE. Purchase of annual membership will be confirmed for member-pricing.

The mold(s) and carving tool(s) must be picked up at the AIA Welcome Center due to the weight. Molds may be picked up at the Welcome Center during open hours: Tuesdays and Thursday, 11am - 4pm. There are hours being added during the summer, so watch for the green OPEN flag.  If the OPEN flag is not out, you can pick up during the open hours of Brookline's Finest, 9am-5pm 7 days per week. Brookline's Finest is within our building, the door next to the Welcome Center. They offer sandwiches, soup and a daily entree, baked goods, beverages, ice cream and locally-made gift items. You may also reach out to President@andresinstitute.org if you want to confirm pick up. Please print or show your confirmation email on your phone to pick up your mold. You can select to pay later and pay with cash or check at the Welcome Center. 

Your purchase buys a mold to carve, instructions and a carving tool. Carve the mold at home and return it to the AIA Welcome Center (see days/hours above). Join us at the Studio to watch the molten iron poured! Once poured, they need to be cooled, cleaned and rough edges removed. This is a good time to explore the trails. Molds cannot be returned as most break during the release process.

There will be shuttle service between the Welcome Center to the Studio on the day of the pour. 

If you are not able to be present at the iron pour you make pick up your iron cast during Welcome Center Open Hours the week after the Iron Melt.

The date for the Fall 2024 Iron Melt has been set: Saturday, October 19th! Carved molds should be returned back to the Andres to be prepped for the pour before the pour date (October 19). If, due to distance, you need to return your mold the day of the pour, it must be dropped off at the Welcome Center by 10:00 am.

Anyone who wishes to carve their mold the day of the iron melt should arrive at the studio (leave time to walk up there) at least two hours ahead of the pour. Come with an idea in mind so you can get right to carving - it takes some doing! It is recommended that you purchase/reserve a mold in advance as the Spring Iron Melt sold out.
