"Presentation"
By Mary Keane of the Foundry Makerspace will present:
"The Foundry Makerspace in Bellingham OR Why was shop class so much fun?
Discover the local place for DIY...  
- 3D printing, surface mount soldering, aluminum casting, laser cutting
- Hand & power tools
- Classes and classroom space
- Hands-on projects with kids
- Friendly, encouraging space for promoting technology in the community
- AND MUCH MORE
You saw the crowds around The Foundry's exhibit at LinuxFest Northwest...come
to the BLUG meeting to find out what is so interesting? Making things yourself
is rewarding; hard to do without a fully equipped workshop. The Foundry gives
anyone the access to tools, instruction and support to make stuff.
The Foundry is also a place to share your skills and interests. Free and open
technology depends on people sharing their work enthusiastically. So The
Foundry is a natural partner for BLUG.
Mary Keane, Founder and Program Director, will present about this valuable
asset in the community, with a virtual tour, some history, plans, demos,
samples and your questions."

Location:
ROOM CC201, on the 2nd floor of BTC's new Campus Center Building.

Remember this meeting is open to the public, tell your neighbor
and bring a friend!
