Keeping Busy @ The Foundry

As The Foundry continues to add new tenants to its roster (see the growing list here), it’s good to keep tabs on all of the ongoing events that the incubator and community space promotes on a regular basis.

Besides the regularly scheduled Second Saturday events, and The Peddler Flea Market setting up (they are there today from 10am to 5pm), there are a number of one-offs that have piqued my curiosity as of late. For example, this morning The Foundry is hosting a Plumbing 101 workshop, which is free for anyone who wants to learn more about the ins and outs of toilets, drains, etc (starts at 10am). Then, on January 21 there is an Adobe Illustrator 101 tutorial and Q&A. On February 2, there’s a First Mondays Electronic Workshop for those who want to learn about electronic circuits, microcontrollers, and how electronic gadgets work in general. On top of that, there are ongoing woodworking workshops with Rusted Grain, Tradeswomen Workshops, and strategy/planning meet-ups with BuffaloMesh. BuffaloMesh is in the process of building a community data network, owned and controlled by those who build it (learn more).

To learn more about all of these events and workshops, click here. To find more about the operations behind these initiatives, such as the three tenants listed below, click here.

Pencil 3D Visuals and Illustrations (see here)

Kelly Design Group – Product designer – Official licensee of Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation (see here)

The Foundry continues to grow, and is the process of creating a shared tool element thanks to a grant from First Niagara. First Niagara employees also recently helped to prepare The Foundry’s second floor for a new business incubator and creative community space. These are just a few of the ongoing initiatives that The Foundry is engaged in. To learn more, stop by in person and explore the building. By doing so, you will come across a world of creatives that you never imagined existed in such a tight-knit community.
