Children's Cast Iron Memory Workshops 2015
In these hour long children’s activity being held at multiple libraries throughout Washington County NY, the Alzheimer’s Glass and Iron volunteer team will be reading the Children’s Book “What’s Happening to Grandpa?” by Maria Shiver, supplied by the Alzheimer’s Association. We will then have a group discussion about memory, while enjoying a snack. The children will be given a relief scratch block made out of sand that they can carve into. We ask that the children represent something of their own memory in the scratch block. The scratch blocks will be poured in iron as part of an Alzheimer’s Iron pour going on at Salem Art Works. The children will be able to watch their relief carvings turned into a cast iron block using metal poured at 2200 degrees by trained professionals.
