    Sketching is an important skill shared by makers across many disciplines! BARN is offering a weekly Sketching Open Studio for BARN Members to practice and improve their drawing skills. Sessions will include visual prompts and an opportunity to ask questions as you practice. Michael Gunderson, a veteran BARN instructor, will facilitate the sessions. 


    Details:

    • Paper and pencils will be supplied if needed, or participants are encouraged to use their own sketchbooks and drawing tools.
    • This Open Studio is only open to BARN members as a member benefit. Members are welcome to participate for free. Registration is not required. Drop on by!
    • Please click here for BARN's current COVID-19 health & safety protocols. 


    Monitor Bio:

    Michael Gunderson moved to Bainbridge after a thirty-plus year career in California Public education. His degree is in the arts and has taught classes in art, jewelry, ceramics, and the trades, as well as serving as an activities and athletic director. He is a founding member of BARN and a past lead of BARN Woodworking.

    He thinks of himself as a person who solves visual problems. He proposes a situation and looks to openly create a visual answer, whether it be paint, wood or combinations of media. “Drawing is a language that creatives share,” he said recently. His sketchbook is a companion that he converses with daily.

    This class has prerequisites. Please see below.

    Learn the basic features of LightBurn, essential software that controls both of our new laser machines. This is the software you'll use whether you are quickly cutting out some parts for your project or are fine tuning your complex etching. LightBurn software replaces RetinaEngrave you may have used previously.

    This class will get you started and will help you implement your own creative laser designs. This class is not a substitute for "Intro to the Laser Cutter".

    Who should take this class?

    If you took "Intro to the Laser Cutter" on the Full Spectrum Laser, this class can get you up and running with our new laser cutters. If you've taken "Intro to the Laser Cutter" on the new lasers and are ready to see how to get more from LightBurn, this class is for you. If you used Inkscape and RetinaEngrave with the FSL and didn't like the software, this class is for you. If you loved using Inkscape and RetinaEngrave, you'll learn how LightBurn fits into your workflow.

    The class covers the basics of LightBurn in the laser cutter workflow. It also covers setting laser parameters for cutting and engraving, importing your designs, vector graphics (line art) vs raster graphics (pixel art), manipulating shapes and tuning images, using the laser libraries, and previewing your work.


    Prerequisite: Laser 101: Intro to Laser Cutter Operations. Please login to your BARN account and click on "My event registrations" to ensure you have completed the required prerequisites before you register for this class.

    Details:
    • Class size is limited to 6.
    • Students should bring a laptop with LightBurn downloaded: https://lightburnsoftware.com/pages/trial-version-try-before-you-buy
    • Please click here for BARN's current COVID-19 health & safety protocols.

    • Students are requested to wear a mask for this class by the instructor.

    Instructor:

    Mike Schrempp is enjoying retirement after spending 39 years in the design and development of computers.  He’s done product development, mechanical part design, engineering management, and architected servers used in big data centers at Amazon and Microsoft.  Now he enjoys making things -- from wood, plastic, metal, food, and Python code -- and showing others some of the tricks he’s learned along the way.

    This is a follow-up course to the Drones 102 course in which participants built a first-person view (FPV) drone. In this course, students will fly their drones on an open field. Students will meet at the BARN at class time, and then arrange to carpool to the site. The site will be announced closer to class time. Students will be responsible for bringing their own FPV drone, controller, and goggles.

    *This class has prerequisites; please see below.

    Learn to operate BARN's Laguna CNC woodworking router and go home with an oval lidded box with custom engraving. Open to students who have beginning skills in Fusion 360, this class will introduce you to this design program’s CAM (computer assisted machining) functions.

    At the first session in the ETA Studio, you will work in Fusion 360 to design your box. Starting with a standardized design, you will tweak the design and create custom engraving to add to the lid. At the second session in the Woodshop, you will use the CAM functions in Fusion 360 to develop tool paths for the router, output G code to run the router, and use the Laguna CNC to cut out and embellish your wooden box.

    You will make the box from maple and walnut. With the lid, the box will be 5¼ inches long, 4 inches wide and up to 3 inches high. At the end of class, your box will be ready for sanding and finishing.

    Details:

    • Prerequisites: Orientation to the Woodshop, Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 1 (Multiple sessions are listed on the Woodworking Calendar) and Intro to Fusion 360 CAD. Please login to your BARN account and click on "My event registrations" to ensure you have completed the required prerequisites before you register for this class.
    • You must bring a laptop computer with a mouse and a working copy of Fusion 360 already downloaded to that computer.

    Learn the basic features of VCarve Pro, a popular program used to make signs, engravings, intricate inlays and imported 3D shapes and models on computer-controlled routers. VCarve Pro is easier to learn than Fusion 360, the other 3D design program taught at BARN, and can be used for projects on both the large CNC router in the Woodworking Studio and the small CNC router in the ETA Lab.

    Session 1 will be in the ETA studio where you will use the VCarve Pro software to design an 8x16" sign. You will prototype your design on ETA's laser cutter then in session 2, you will meet down in the wood shop to carve it on the CNC router.

    Please note: To take this class, you need a laptop computer with a mouse and a working copy of VCarve Pro 11 already downloaded to that computer. Download a free trial at www.vectric.com. The software requires a PC or a MAC that has Windows installed. There is no time during the class to download the program. If you have questions or run into problems downloading the program, please email the instructor for help. If you don't have a laptop you can bring to the class, you may use an ETA studio desktop computer with the required software already loaded.

    **This workshop will be live streamed via Zoom.**

    Get introduced to 3D printing in this 2-hour session. You'll get to see BARN's printers and gain an understanding of how they work and what they can make.

    You will see a computer file get readied for printing in a process called "slicing."

    You'll see the different printers we have and learn about filament, the material 3D printers use to make prints.  We'll start a print and you'll see the printer print.

    3D printing has many uses, ranging from practical to fun, such as replacement parts, mold-making, medical models used in surgery, prototypes and more.  

    Bring your curiosity and questions. You can continue to use the 3D printers at Open Studio where a studio monitor or other member can help you.

    This class is designed for makers getting started with the laser cutter in the Electronic and Technical Arts Studio. You will learn how to operate BARN's laser cutter safely as you make a small item. Successful completion of this workshop is the first step toward becoming qualified for independent operation of the laser cutter. It also prepares you for more advanced laser cutting classes.

    The class covers how to prep a design for cutting and engraving on the laser cutter as well as the set-up, settings and operation of the laser cutter.

    Required: Bring a laptop with Inkscape installed. It is the free design software we use with the laser cutter. Click here to go to Inkscape.org where you can download it. There are versions for Windows, Mac OS and Linux. If you don't have a laptop you can bring to the class, please email eta.programming@bainbridgebarn.org as BARN may be able to provide an alternative.

    Class size is limited to 4.
