Valentines Day 2018 Maker Date Night

Valentines Day 2018 Maker Date Night

Restricted to ages 21+  Tickets for this event are per COUPLE (two admitted) not per individual. 
Our much-anticipated annual Valentines Day Maker Date Night event returns for its sixth year!  Enjoy hors-d'oeuvres, dinner, drinks, desserts, and more along with hands-on Maker experiences!

This year's event brings you hands-on maker projects:  Idea Foundry instructors have new projects and crowd favorites for you to cut, make, design, and build together with the help of professional artists and craftsmen that call the the Idea Foundry home.  

Maker experiences include (exact projects may vary across evenings):

Blacksmithing (hearts or hooks)

Woodworking (collaborative project with blacksmithing or mixed media project)

Lockpicking or Stained Glass (depending on evening)

Woodturning project (bottle stopper)

Mixed media (creative arts) project

Copper stamping & patina jewelry project (choice of pendant or key ring)

Photography station with prints

**we reserve the right to substitute projects of equal value in the event of unforeseen circumstances with instructors or material availability.

The Idea Foundry welcomes diversity and equality and is happy to host couples (aged 21+) of all types!  

P.S. you don't even have to bring a "date"...please feel free to join us with your BFF, your bro, sis, mum, whatever!  

Additional Guest Information

Please dress appropriately for the weather and for a workshop environment. Layers and long sleeves with closed-toe shoes are recommended. Open toed shoes may prohibit your participation in some stations. 

Dinner & Drinks

Enjoy a delicious gourmet meal catered by a local favorite, plus great wine selections and craft beer selections from our neighbors at Land Grand Brewery, along with plenty of hour d'oerves and dessert goodies!
We'll have a vegetarian entree option available for dinner, but not necessarily have vegan or gluten-free entree options.  Please email casey@columbusideafoundry.com if you have dietary accommodation questions before ordering a ticket if that will affect your desire to attend.  We may or may not be able to accommodate your dietary preference; cancellations will still need to adhere to the event cancellation policy below. 

Because we're hosting you with wine & beer, all our activities have been made safe, but we are still a workshop environment. We reserve the right to refuse participation in any area if participants are visibly inebriated.  Please enjoy your maker experiences first and enjoy adult beverages responsibly! 

Maker Experiences

You are welcome to spend as much or as little time at each station during the event hours as you wish to complete your project, and you can choose to skip areas that don't call to you.

We can't guarantee you'll have enough time to participate in ALL projects depending on how long you spend at each project area and if you choose to wait in line to participate in one station instead of moving to another open station.  Most guests complete at a minimum of 4-6 project stations.  

In the event of unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to make changes to the project lineup or food service if needed, without notice, but accommodations will be of the same value as those initially described.
