Foundry Makerspace open house on Saturday

A new space for Bellingham manufacturers, crafters, creators and makers of all kinds is hosting an open house at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 13.

The Foundry Makerspace, at 1515 N. Forest St., offers access to an array of tools for a monthly fee. Storage and co-working space is available for an extra fee.

“So many people are already creating things in their garages and basements, but need more room, specialized tools, or inspiration to make their ideas a reality,” said Mary Keane, Executive Director and Co-Founder, in a press release. “A makerspace is a place to do that. We’re here to educate and engage the community from kids through adults.”

Tools at the Foundry include 3D printers and scanners, a laser cutter, a computer lab, an industrial sewing machine, a CNC mill and router, a vinyl cutter, electronics, robotics, and a full wood shop, according to a press release.

The Foundry will also have classes and programs for kids and teens throughout the year, as well as drop-in events such as Minecraft parties and Lego building sessions.

The Foundry is open Wednesday through Friday from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m., and from 12 p.m. to midnight on Saturday and Sunday.
