The Foundry

We're looking for a few good people to help us with a multi-weekend project of tearing down and rebuilding a new fence around the Foundry property.

It is time. Our fence needs a whole lotta love.

Can you help us by volunteering a few hours of your time?

From 10am-2pm we will be working outside to remove the old fence posts, mix & pour concrete for the new posts and install the new posts.

We also are looking for volunteers to help clean up the area around the fence - no heavy lifting - removing weeds, shrubbery - cleaning up trash and debris etc...

Mission Statement

MISSION STATEMENT - THE FOUNDRY USES AN INCLUSIVE APPROACH TO ADVANCING INDIVIDUALS THROUGH HANDS-ON LEARNING, ENTREPRENEURSHIP, AND EXPOSURE TO POSSIBILITIES.

Description

The Foundry is a creative education space and business incubator. We provide affordable access to tools in our wood, metal, tech and textile makerspaces. Become a makerspace member, take a class with us, or support programming for Buffalo’s youth.

The Foundry brings together do’ers, innovators, and action seekers. We provide affordable work spaces for product-related businesses. We dream about having weavers and welders, woodworkers and glassworkers, carvers and crafters, all under one roof, all experimenting with their craft, while helping to build their small enterprises.
For many of us involved, we get new ideas and perspective from the organic process of discussion, debate, and exchange with the others we work with. We also offer educational opportunities and work with school age children, exposing them to alternative career options and providing opportunities to learn hands-on skills.
