    The first step in designing and making any object is translating the idea into a 2 dimensional plan and that starts with a drawing. This class will be reviewing sketching techniques and drawing plans. It will include one and two point perspectives and practice in shading. This class is for beginners and people who want to revisit their drawing skills.  While offered through the Woodworking Studio, this class will appeal to craftspersons from a variety of disciplines.  Each student will be provided with a sketch pad, pencil and pencil sharpener.

    Age: 14+

    An additional Materials Fee of $15 will be added when you register.

    Instructor:
    Michael Gunderson - 
    Michael 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 has always found a great pleasure in communicating with young people.

    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. He is not political in his work - not even angry. He's looking for the fun and the whacky.

    Designed as a user's guide to BARN ETA studio, this free orientation session is highly recommended for all participants. It will cover everything from studio etiquette and policies to an overview of what we have and where stuff is. 

    You'll get to see the 3D printers, laser cutter, soldering station, hand tools and more. Overall BARN policies as well as studio-specific ones will also be covered.

    Participants will also learn about the leadership structure within ETA  and about opportunities to participate in helping everything run smoothly. Volunteer jobs range range from serving as studio monitors to helping with studio maintenance.

    This event is free but please register so we know how many to expect.

    Linux is a full-featured computer operating system that's fast, secure and fun to use. It's free and will work an (almost) any computer. If you have an old or spare laptop, we have a perfect way for you to try out Linux.

    In this free workshop, you'll learn how to get a Linux distribution and install it on your own machine ... either by itself or alongside your present operating system as a dual boot.

    While your computer is busy, we'll discuss some of the popular flavors of Linux, cover basics about open source software, and point out good places to go for help.

    Once you're computer is loaded up, we'll go through some common tasks to get your new system running smoothly and configured as you would like.

    Don't have a spare laptop? Come anyway and see what all the fuss is about! There will be at least two working Linux machines available for show and tell plus time available for sharing basic know-how and advice.

    Class size is limited to 7 so that you get hands-on assistance.

    Instructor: Duncan Montgomery, an avid Linux user.

    Get introduced to 3D printing in this one-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.

    Class size is limited to 6.

    This 2-hour class is designed for makers getting started with the laser cutter. You will learn how to operate BARN's laser cutter safely as you make a small item.

    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.

    Optional: 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. This is not strictly necessary, but will help you get the most out of this class.  Or, if you know and use Adobe Illustrator, that works, too. Just bring your laptop to the class.

    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. 

    Class size is limited to 4.

    For youth ages 9 - 12

    In this 5 session, 2 hours a day class, youth explore the world of engineering using the MaKey MaKey invention kit. MaKey MaKey is an innovative circuit board kit that enables kids to create inventions by wiring up everyday objects to a computer. Check out this video to see the MaKey MaKey in action: 


    MaKey MaKey - An Invention Kit for Everyone from jay silver on Vimeo.

    Kids will use the MaKey MaKey to create guided projects including banana pianos, play-dough bongos, and pipe cleaner game controllers. They will also work in teams to design and build their own inventions, which we will demo to parents on the last night of class.

    The goal of this camp is to foster the "maker mindset," encouraging kids to bring their ideas to life and embrace the creative process of designing, collaborating, building, making mistakes, and trying again!

    For more information about MaKey MaKey (including a gallery of student inventions) please see their website: https://makeymakey.com

    Important Notes:

    Please complete this permission slip and bring it to the first day of class.

    Minimal financial assistance available. Please apply here.

    If you would like BARN to know any specific information about your child's allergies or learning needs, please email Julie Leung: julie@bainbridgebarn.org

    For youth ages 9 - 12
    (This is a 10 session class).

    If you’re interested in interactive toys, smart accessories, or light-up fashions, this class is for you! We will work together to create a set of LilyPad Arduino projects that bring together craft, electronics, and programming. We will craft a series of quirky customizable projects including a sparkling bracelet, a glow-in-the-dark bookmark, a fabric piano, and a monster that sings when you hold its hands. Play with cutting-edge technologies and learn sewing, programming, and circuit design along the way. This camp is a great way to introduce girls to engineering. More details available on the Sew Electric website: http://sewelectric.org

    Materials Fee: 

    $160 includes all electrical components and your very own copy of the book "Sew Electric," which contains detailed tutorials for all of the projects we will make. The book and all materials used are yours to take home and keep after the class.
