The top story on our site this week was about The Foundery’s much-anticipated open house happening tonight, where guests will enjoy demonstrations in everything from liquid nitrogen ice cream making to welding and wood lathing. The Foundery, a maker space designed for industrial creatives with pretty much any level of experience, moved to Port Covington from downtown Baltimore last June. Its new space in the City Garage building is roughly 10 times the size of the old one. Since the move, The Foundery has held three open houses; tonight’s will be the fourth.
“Our tagline is community access to industrial-grade tools and training,” said CEO Jason Hardebeck in an interview. “Our goal is really to introduce as many people as possible to the tools and kind of equipment you would find in a workshop or a factory.”
The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. at at 101 W. Dickman Street.
