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