    In the world of creative nonfiction, forms such as the abecedarian are proliferating. In this four-session class we will scrutinize models of three different forms (abecedarian, the A/B form, and the collage) and generate three new creative nonfictions of our own based upon these forms. In class we'll write in our notebooks in the timed writing method developed by Natalie Goldberg. As we develop our pieces, we'll work on prose style—sound and syntax—toward bringing them into the realm of highly publishable. The required text is the Second Edition of The Writers Portable Mentor: A Guide to Art, Craft, and the Writing Life (available in September 2018).

    Get a good foundation in carving techniques, including push, stop and draw cuts. In this three-session class, you will learn the basics of safe handling and use of carving knives the first night, then go on to learn how to deal with changes in wood grain, hollowing techniques, and other concepts as you make a spoon and carve a figure during second and third sessions.

    This class is open to both beginning carvers and those who already have some carving experience. Each time BARN schedules this class, the carving projects are new.

    Details:

    • Open to ages 8 and older, although those 12 and under must have an adult with them. No prior experience is needed.
    • BARN will supply carving tools to share, but students are also encouraged to bring their own.
    • In addition to the class fee, a $10 materials fee will be collected when you register. This covers wood and shop supplies.

    Instructor: As a third-generation woodworker, Jeff Iller learned about woodworking tools and knives early on. By high school, he was winning ribbons with his wood carvings at his hometown fair. Around 1996 Jeff found room for a shop and he has carved ever since. He’ll carve most anything, but prefers to innovate with the working tools to carve multiple parts inside one piece of wood and to make physically detailed and accurate carvings of women's faces. Carvings on the entry sign to the BARN Woodworking Studio shows the quality of his work.

    Iller says he was taught early on that he could make anything from wood. He is still trying to prove that statement wrong.

    Build a unique slab bench or small table in this six-session class.

    Create a piece that highlights the natural beauty in a slab's swirling grain or intriguing color known as spalting. Preserve a live edge, rip a straight-line edge or combine the two styles into your design.

    At the first session, the instructor will discuss design considerations, suitable wood and several options of styles for top and base. The instructor will walk you through the process of drawing up your design ideas into working plans. 

    The next sessions will be devoted to building your project and preparing it for final finish. You will work at your own pace, but you should be prepared to spend additional time during Open Studio times between class sessions, if necessary to complete your project. 

    The final session will cover finish options and application techniques. You will go home with enough finish to apply multiple coats to your completed project.

    Details:

    • There is a $34 materials fee to cover the finish, epoxy and other shop supplies. This will be collected online when you register and pay.
    • You will need to supply the wood for your project. You can buy wood from BARN, purchase it elsewhere or bring what you have from your wood stash. Registrants will receive information about how to select appropriate wood. The moisture issues associated with use of BARN's SawStop table saws aren't critical for this project unless your slab is thicker than 2 inches.
    • Beginners are welcome, but please enroll in our three-hour Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 1 and 2 classes ahead of time. If the classes listed on the calendar are full, please email using this form and we will open a spot for you.
    • You will be able to store your wood in the woodshop between sessions.

    Instructor: Carol Fiedler Kawaguchi is a professional woodworker who specializes in restoration of antique furniture through her business, C-Saw, on Bainbridge Island. She also makes custom furniture, including the slab coffee table in the Commons at BARN. Marvin Crosland will assist.

    Learn the basic features of Fusion 360, a 3-D design program that will allow you to design objects on a computer screen and turn into items made of metal, wood, plastic or even molds for casting glass.

    This class is required if you want to take studio-specific classes in how to run computer-controled tools at BARN including the plasma cutter in the Welding Studio, the milling machine in the Metal Machining Studio, or the CNC router in the Woodworking Studio. You can also use Fusion 360 to design objects for BARN's 3-D printers. 

    Please note: You must bring a laptop computer with a mouse and a working copy of Fusion 360 already downloaded to that computer. This is critical as no computers are provided, and the design program does not work well with a trackpad. There is no time during the class to download the program. If you have questions or run into problems downloading the program, please use this form to contact the instructor for help.

    This is a two-session class, designed to allow you to work with the program after the first session and get help with roadblocks or answers to your questions at the second session. Allow time between the sessions to work on your project, which you will get at the first session. A  learning reference will be provided on the techniques covered in the class, including: 
    • Basic design concepts
    • Step-by-step creation of a cad design
    • Additional learning resources so you can fast-track your proficiency in Fusion

    Printmaking: Fob Open Studio will be a regular Monday feature*.  This is un-monitored, dedicated time when BARN members with printmaking studio fob access can be sure there is no other class in session, and can make plans to print together in the studio. (Technically, Open Studio in the print studio is whenever there is not a class in session. Check both the Print and Book Arts calendars; if there is no class for either of these studios, you are welcome to come in and work.)  But Mondays are a reliable time to work on your own projects that do not require further instruction, no need to check the calendar.  Up to 10 print studio members can work at one time.  If there is high demand, we will begin having formal online registration for this time period.  Until then, you can just show up.

    Details:

    • Prerequisite: BARN Member and Print Studio fob access (authorized by the Studio Lead after completing the prerequisites for unmonitored time in the studio).
    • There is no fee for this time.  It is part of your BARN membership.  
    • Open studio users are expected to know where studio tools, supplies, and equipment is kept, to respect the standards and policies posted for studio use, to be considerate of others, and to leave the studio neat and clean when finished.     
    • A variety of print paper is available for purchase in the print studio.
    • Feel free to bring a meal or snacks. Food is allowed in the common area adjacent to the studio classroom, and there is a kitchen in which to store and reheat. 

      *There will be no Open Studio on Monday, October 1 due to the BARN wide clean up event.

    Make two bowls 6 to 7 inches in diameter in this two-session class as you build your woodturning skills and learn some of the special techniques and insights needed for bowl-turning. To take this class, you must already have taken Introduction to Woodturning or equivalent. (See below).

    You will learn how to use a bowl gouge while designing and turning tthe two bowls. In the first session, you will learn the basics about selecting green wood and creating proper bowl blanks, preserving the blanks for future turning, mounting a bowl safely on the lathe, and using bowl gouges to create the bowls. In the second session, you will turn a seasoned bowl blank as you practice and improve your  gouge skills and learn the basics of sanding and finishing.

    By successfully completing these two sessions, and turning two bowls, you will have a good understanding of the process and techniques, and be able to turn bowls of this size independently during Open Studio time in the BARN Woodworking Studio.

    Details:

    • Open to students who have taken BARN's Introduction to Woodturning class or demonstrated equivalent lathe safety and turning skills during a private studio session with the instructor. If you have not taken Introduction to Woodturning, you need to contact Jamie Straw, (360) 551-9233,  and arrange a review session at least 10 days before you register.
    • A materials fee of $25, for two bowl blanks, is in addition to the class fee and will be collected when you register.
    • While this class is oriented to novice turners, it is also appropriate and useful for experienced turners who have predominantly used scrapers and wish to acquire or improve their gouge skills.
    • Short-sleeve or tight-cuff tops and close-toe comfortable shoes are required. No jewelry other than "button-type" earrings for women is allowed, so no rings, bracelets, necklaces. Long hair must be tied back.

    Help launch BARN's new Japanese woodworking program as you learn to set up Japanese-style chisels and planes. These tools never arrive ready to use; they always require fine-tuning, and this class will teach you the steps.

    The class will work on tools that BARN is buying for use in beginning Japanese woodworking classes. But once you get hooked on this style of woodworking, you are likely to buy your own tools and will need the information covered in this class.

    To set up the wooden-body planes used in Japanese woodworking, you will learn how to flatten the back of the blade, shapen the bevel edge on water stones, and fit the chipper blade. You will fine-tune the wooden block and condition its base with a scraper plane. Then you will learn to set and adjust the blade.

    Turning to the chisels, you will learn how to fit the handle ring, and how to prepare the back of the blade and sharpen the bevel edge.

    Details:

    • Open to beginners 14+.
    • There is no materials fee for this class.

    Instructor: Gary Bella  grew up in western Pennsylvania.  After college and art school, he moved to the Bay Area in California and began working in Marin County with several firms in residential construction.

After he moved to Bainbridge in 2003, he continued to build Japanese-inspired projects for private clients. He was among the master craftsmen who restored the Japanese guest house at the Bloedel Reserve.

    Pattern Bar technique is yet another possibility that brings unique design elements to your glass practice. It is best described as a stacked multicolored glass bar that when sliced, arranged & fired can create stunning patterns. Sometimes referred to as a 'segment slab' it is composed of sheet glass strips that are tack-fused together, cut into parts, and fired within a containment system until the glass flows and forms an internal pattern.

    Session 1 of this project-based lesson you will learn to create pattern bars that will then be kiln fired.

    In Session 2 you will use the studio's wet saw to cut your fired bars into cross-sectional pieces and arrange them within a containment system. However you arrange them, your outcome will be a fascinating.

    In Session 3 you will cold work your finished piece readying it for fire polishing.  The result will be a finished disc for serving or who knows! Where you take it after that is up to you!

    About the Instructor: Kat Gyorgy

     I am passionate about vegan and vegetarian cuisine and introducing more and more people to the pleasures of a plant based diet. The kitchen has been my playground since I was a child and it brings me tremendous happiness to share my love of cooking great tasting food that is simple, whole, healthy and nourishes not only the body, but also the mind and soul. So much of life happens in the kitchen and enjoyed around the table, so it is my desire to share the flavors of the world and bring you more enjoyment with my “gypsy-ing around the globe” inspired dishes.

    Intro to Computer Aided Design (CAD) for non-techies

    Course Description 

    No experience with computer design is necessary for this class. This beginning level class is designed for anyone interested in designing their own creations and printing them on a 3D printer. 

    It is for non-techies and is meant to get you started with both computer aided design (CAD) and with 3D printing. Learn how to create 3D files and create a finished product on the 3D printer. This is a class for those that want to learn to create custom objects using software that does not have a steep learning curve. By the end of this class, you will be independently creating objects ready for 3D printing. 

    This class was created because people come in to ETA expressing interest in learning to design custom objects such as jewelry, buttons for clothing, home hardware and game pieces.

    We’ll introduce computer aided design (CAD) using Tinkercad, a free program that is easy to work with for those new to CAD. TinkerCAD is not as powerful as programs like Fusion360, but it has many capabilities, is less overwhelming to beginners and serves as a good foundation for learning about computer aided design. At the conclusion to the class, we will have time to print one or two of your creations on the 3D printer.

    Important: Before coming to class

    ·  Go to Tinkercad.com and create a free account. Bring your log in details to class with you.

    Preference is to bring in your own laptop capable of running Tinkercad. ETA has 4 computers available for use but they are spread out in the studio and class size maximum is 6 tinkerers.

    Materials: Students should bring a Windows or Apple laptop to class with them. 

    Skill Level: Beginnner

    Ages: Ages 14+ welcome.

    Whether you are making a toy for your grandchild, son or daughter — or sibling, if you are a teen at least 14 years old — this class is for you. Push or pull toy animals thrill and excite toddlers with their animated movement. You will make a child smile while improving your woodworking skills.

    You will be offered a choice of different wooden toys to build,  such as galloping horses, toucan, hippo or duck. You will learn shop safety, template making, band saw techniques, sander operations, and drilling. After choosing a design, you will cut it out, add the movable parts, such as wheels, legs, jaws, arms and tail. Then you will decorate the toy to give it the unique look and feel that you desire.

    Instructors will assist you in laying out and cutting the parts and in figuring out the simple engineering needed to bring your toy to life. After completing this class you will be able to build any of a dozen other animals in this series.

    Details:

    • A material fee of $20, to cover materials and shop supplies, will be added when you register and pay.
    • Suitable for beginners as well as more experienced woodworkers.
    • The class will consist of two three-hour sessions with open studio time between to finish the project.  The instructor and assistants will be available each day. The complete schedule is Oct. 17 — class 6 to 9 p.m.; Oct. 18 — open studio 3 to 9 p.m.; Oct. 19 —  class 6 to 9 p.m.; Oct. 20 —  open studio noon to 6 p.m.

    Instructor: Bruce Glover has worked with wood for most of his life, primarily simple projects around the house. After taking courses at his local Woodcraft store, he started making more woodworking projects with an emphasis on lathe work. Not long ago, a friend suggested toy making and Bruce has added those to his shop undertakings. Sam Bardelson, Tom Leurguin, Jeff Williams and Michael Gunderson, all experienced woodworkers, will assist Bruce.

    Please join us on Wednesday, October 17th for a special seminar on charitable planned giving. This event is open to the public.

    Planned giving can do two things, lower taxes and trade a gift for income. It is sometimes referred to as gift planning or legacy giving. Some planned gifts provide life-long income to donor. Other gift plans use estate and tax planning to provide for charity and heirs in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor’s estate.  

    Planned giving allows for a donor to have a more meaningful impact with their gifts and potentially reduce unnecessary taxes.

    Topics to be discussed include:

    • The opportunity of charitable IRA distributions
    • How the new 2018 tax law makes PLANNED GIVING more powerful
    • Gifts of appreciated assets
    • Income from gifts of appreciated assets
    • The new power of bunching charitable deductions

    No registration needed. Free for members. Open to non-members. For non-members, there is a $20 drop-in fee payable to the studio monitor. Non-members stopping by to check out the space and observe are free.

    • BARN Woodworking Studio

    Beyond the speed and noise of power tools, there is a whole world of woodworking done with hand tools. Whether you’re a luthier, a wood carver, an inheritor of old hand tools or just generally interested in honing your hand woodworking skills or tools, you are invited to this weekly gathering in the bench room. Share tips, ask questions, get inspired.

    Details:

    • Free for members. $20 for non-members.
    • No experience necessary. Bring  in your planes, drills, chisels, and saws and make a little something, or work on your partially built guitar, or bring out BARN’s carving tools or your own and whittle away.
    • Chisels and plane blades need sharpening? Learn how.
    • Questions? Contact Doug using  this form or phone Matt at (206) 849-6584.

    NOTE: These sessions may need to be canceled occasionally. Check the woodworking calendar for any updates.
