The Foundry Creative Workshop will be hosting Steve Mermelstein and his unmanned flying drone at Lyndon Institute's True Building, Saturday October 24, 2015 from 11AM to 1PM. Steve will be showing how unmanned aerial vehicles can be used for photography and fun.
This demonstration is part of a larger series of Saturday Seminars, a string of topics of interest to the, the potential inventor, the potential business founder, or the beginning to advanced homecrafter.
Mr. Mermelstein is a photography workshop instructor, award-winning commercial, event, and aerial photographer, naturalist, birder and nature lover based in South Burlington, Vermont. He says, “Vermont Drone is all about capturing Vermont’s beauty, not only from the ground, but from the air as well.”
There will also be tours of the Foundry Workshop and displays of the projects taking place there. The workshop provides members with the ability to use tools and equipment that they may not own themselves, allowing members exposure to a wide variety of techniques, and disciplines. This space will encourage the development of ideas and inventions.
A partnership between the Foundry and Lyndon Institute allows space for members of the Foundry to collaborate and brainstorm new ideas using LI’s metal fabrication and woodworking shop. The Foundry is open Monday and Wednesday, 5-8:30 p.m. and Saturday, 9 am – 1 p.m.
“We want to build a community where arts and the sciences can work together, having a long-term positive social and economic impact on the Northeast Kingdom.” said Jim Schenck, President of the Foundry. “Our alliance with Lyndon Institute allows the Foundry to empower people with both the inspiration and the resources to innovate and develop ideas. The Saturday Seminars are a natural extension.”
