Where makers are made

The Idea Foundry is a community of makers, designed to help you explore new ideas and unleash your passion to make things. We have tools and technology for you to use, spaces for you to work in, and teachers and like-minded members to help along the way. Whether you're interested in welding or furniture making, building drones or inventing a new video game, launching a start-up or just taking a class -- our community of artists, artisans, techies, and entrepreneurs are ready to help.
