The Foundery’s day passes are about to get cheaper

The new pricing scheme, which starts Aug. 1, is designed to help more people get access to the Port Covington makerspace.

The Foundery is introducing a new pricing model for one-day access to the heavy hardware at City Garage.

Previously, a day pass to the Port Covington-based makerspace was $50. Starting Aug. 1, the Port Covington-based makerspace is cutting its Mon.-Fri. daytime pass to $20. Access on evening and weekends will be $10 going forward, according to a press release. Additionally, $150 monthly passes will no longer be offered.

It’s a move that’s designed to lower barriers to using the tools at the space.

“The Foundery’s new system will enable those interested in developing a career in manufacturing to come and use our tools and develop their skills on a pay-as-you-go basis,” Executive Director Jason Hardebeck said in a statement.

The makerspace has been introducing initiatives that are designed to provide job training for city residents. Partnering with the Center for Urban Families, it also rolled out a manufacturing bootcamp earlier this year. A new cohort began earlier this month.
