Event preview: Summer Open House

Jesse Tigges, Columbus Alive

During this weekend's Franklinton Fridays event, the Columbus Idea Foundry will open its doors - and all stations and shops - for an open house that makes the Franklinton community workshop, learning center, and creative space the place to be. The Foundry will offer a tour of the facility with opportunities to experience all of the creative output - from conventional technologies to the high-tech - by meeting with instructors, checking out tool demonstrations and participating in make-and-take activities.
