March 21 – Sip-N-Scratch!


WHAT: Sip-N-Scratch!

WHEN: Saturday, March 21st from 2 p.m to 6 p.m.

WHERE: The Buffalo Maritime Center, 90 Arthur Street, Buffalo, NY 14207

On Saturday, March 21st from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., join the Buffalo Maritime Center Foundry for an afternoon of making, drinking, and fun! Participate in an aluminum casting event while creating your own low-relief sculpture. Participants will be provided with instructions on what to do, tools to scratch, and what is called a scratch block mold.

Scratch block molds are a resin bonded sand mold with a blank “face.” They are sort of like a blank canvas, but for hot metal! Every participant of this event will be given their own scratch block, shown how to create an interesting image on it, given examples on what a successful sculpture created in this method looks like, and be allowed to sip on beer and wine in the process!

Once completed with your scratch block, you will be able to see it poured with hot metal right before your eyes. The castings will then be cooled and ready to take home that night!

Your ticket purchase comes with an afternoon of fun and a free beer. ONLY 40 TICKETS AVAILABLE! Register now – seats fill up fast! For more info, email us at
