Innovate, explore and create on your own or together with fellow students from Babson, Olin and Wellesley.
Have an idea and don’t know where to begin? Bring it to the the Foundry and we will help you get it off the ground and make it a reality. Working on a project already? We can help you advance it even further with technical support, advanced fabrication equipment and fresh perspectives. The new Weissman Foundry has everything you need to build your art, design, academic or entrepreneurial projects. It’s an entire building dedicated solely to making your ideas happen, and it is open to all BOW students and faculty.
Don’t have an idea?
Just want to try to make a wood sculpture, a prototype, learn how to use a 3-D printer, or help someone else with their project, stop by. Before you know it, you will more ideas than you would have ever imagined.
Collaborate and get even more inspired.
The Foundry is a place where you can collaborate with other students who help you build on your ideas. It’s an entrepreneurial think tank, an artist’s studio, a performance space, a media lab, a wood shop – and your 10,000 square foot arena to work on any project you want. Stop by or email us and we will help you get started. Want to brainstorm with a team, let us know and we will put one together just for you.
Think outside the curriculum – and the campus –and put your ideas into motion.
At The Foundry, we don't put restrictions on what you can do, because we don't believe in self-imposed limitations. We encourage you to bring us ideas outside your areas of study and work on them right here.
It’s a positive environment where taking risks is encouraged and all ideas are welcome. We don’t stop there. We have the tools, materials and state-of-the art technology you need to make your ideas happen. And we have a team of volunteers from all three schools waiting to help.
