To celebrate the Idea Foundry's reopening to the public and the relaunch of classes, we are hosting a spring open house on Saturday, May 22nd from 11am - 5pm. There will be live demonstrations of some of the tools available here at the Idea Foundry, guided tours of the facilities, and an information table for anyone with questions. There will be a few hands-on make 'n take stations that will let you create and take home some custom souvenirs like injection molded keychains, laser cut pins, and colorful ceramic fire tiles.
Come see what some of our incredibly talented members have been working on over the past year. There will be a little bit of everything, from art to jewelry to industrial fashion. Check out Ross Rimmel's drivable wooden tank and LouisWeisz's infamous chicken slapper that went viral on YouTube.
Talk to the owners of BarCar Columbus and Red Barn Chili about their mobile offerings for your next big event. The Columbus Fashion Alliance, a fashion based non-profit based out of the Idea Foundry, will be showing off their design and production labs for anyone interested in learning about or starting a fashion based business.
Visit the information table for answers to any of the questions you may have about becoming a member or taking any of the classes we offer. We will be posting classes and opening registration the day before the open house. Anyone that signs up for classes at the information table the day of the event will receive a 25% discount! We will also have a big announcement about the cost of our membership plans during the event as well.
Masks are still required inside the building and for your safety please observe the off-limit areas labeled "Members Only".
Please feel free to share this blog post or the Facebook event with all of your family and friends. We hope to see everyone this Saturday, May 22nd from 11am - 5pm. Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/156674443005309
