It’s the fourth Friday of the month, and that means it’s “Factur Friday.”

That’s pronounced like "factor," but spelled with with a “u” instead of an “o”…and that’s the name of the collaborative makers' space in Ivanhoe Village holding the event.

Factur president Jacqui Kantu tells 90.7's Nicole Darden Creston what it’s all about.

"It's a place for 'do-it-yourselfers,' it's a place for entrepreneurs, it's a place for people to be creative," Kantu begins.

Factur has a wood shop, metal shop, a forge, a 3-D printer, and it boasts members who are creatives in many fields, from electronics to sewing to wood crafts and more.

This evening's Factur Friday will feature food trucks, a live band, demonstrations on some of Factur's equipment, and items for purchase from some of its creatives and members.

Find information about Factur Friday on the Facebook event page.
