    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

    Instructor: Chris Stanley is a fourth-generation artist/ craftsman who works in a variety of media. After working for many years as a professional model maker in both architectural and design fields, he went into education. He taught computer-aided design and other classes for the Art Institute of Seattle for 19 years.

    Maria Newman and Friends
    at BARN

    Renowned composer and musician Maria Newman will make a rare Seattle-area appearance in a benefit concert for BARN. She’ll lead a program of live music and conversation, performing her own compositions with three other accomplished musicians. The evening will include the showing of a silent film, with live accompaniment composed and performed by Newman.

    The program, to be performed in the Great Room at BARN, will include four original works:

    • The Pied Piper of Hamelin (Trio)
    • Maskil (Sonata for Solo Piano / Allegro Assai)
    • Pennipotenti (Violin, Viola and Flute Trio)
    • Tom Sawyer (Silent film with live accompaniment)

    In addition to Newman, performers will include Scott Hosfield, acclaimed violist and conductor and Music Director of the Malibu Coast Chamber Orchestra and the Malibu Coast Silent Film Orchestra. Also performing will be Dr. Hal Ott, professor of flute at Central Washington University, and BARN member Dr. Chris Eisenberg, pianist.

    Newman, who is the youngest child of 9-time Academy Award winning movie composer Alfred Newman and actress and Goldwyn girl Martha Louise Montgomery, is a composer of classical music, a violinist, violist and pianist. She has received recognition and commendation from the Annenberg Foundation, the United State Congress and the Mary Pickford Foundation. Newman’s library of original works represents a range of genres, from large scale orchestral works, works for the ballet, chamber works, choral and vocal works, to new collaborative scores for vintage silent film.

    Learn more about Maria Newman here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maria_Newman

    After the performance, there will be a reception with beverages and hors d’oeuvres. All profits from the event will benefit BARN.

    Gold is one of the most universally admired and desired elements known to mankind. In addition to its many medical, industrial, and jewelry uses, Gold is also the most recycled metal in history. In this class we will learn the “How-to” of identifying golds of different karat and alloy. Learn to use a Loop and hallmarks and to use a “touch stone” with acids to separate different karats of gold in this class.

    Participants will be using their own old gold jewelry as the base of learning. Separating usable gold alloy into the different karat grades for ingot making. Casting ingots and processing the ingot by reducing, annealing, and rolling mill use will be demonstrated. Turn your broken chains, earrings, and rings into wire for new jewelry use!

    The first day of class will focus on gold identification and ingot making. Later in the afternoon we will be focusing on processing the ingot into workable wire. Participants must provide their own gold for this class and will leave with their own gold recycled into a more useful form.

    There will be a Material Fee of $15.00 added to the cost of the class when you register.

    Do you want to cast outside of class? 

    Come be a part of BARN’s Casting Club!!

    This is an exciting opportunity to practice casting your own work in precious metals.  This is a Hands-On experience. You'll have an opportunity to do every step in the casting process yourself. This isn't a class, but more like an open studio for casting. It will require some casting experience (see below) and teamwork. We've started this club to give our community a chance to cast on a regular basis. We plan on growing and evolving to include the casting of 3D printed pieces and mold making.  If you're interested in participating, see requirements and specifics below.

    What's included

    When you sign-up, you automatically get two small to medium flasks to cast. We ask that you:

    • keep your waxes under 3.5 grams (for now)
    • cast in Bronze or Sterling. We will have some metal for sale, but please feel free to bring your own. If you are using scrap, please clean and remove all solder beforehand.  (If you want to cast in a different metal, please be sure to email us ahead of time.)

    Additional Flasks

    If you’d like to cast more than two flasks, please email us so we can confirm there is available space.  Each flask beyond the two allotted will incur an additional materials fee paid on the investing day.   (All participant’s first two flasks will have priority over additional flasks in case of a full kiln).

    Casting Club Requirements

    You need to have taken at least one lost wax centrifugal casting class in the last 5 years where you poured your own metal. (Or have enough experience with lost wax centrifugal casting that you are comfortable casting on your own.   If this is the case, shoot us an email so you can get approved.)

    Please wear closed-toed shoes and long pants to the casting day.  Non-flammable natural fiber is best. Please bring something to tie back loose hair and don’t wear loose draping clothing.  

    We have dust masks, safety glasses and gloves that you can use, but feel free to bring your own.

    To participate you must be 18 years or older (special circumstances must be cleared with the Jewelry Studio beforehand)

    What To Expect

    On Friday evening, we will be investing, so come with your pieces sprued, weighed (don't forget to record your wax weight & bring it) and attached to the sprue base, so we can jump right in.  Don’t plan on there being time to sprue your work during this time.  If you have any concerns or would like some advice on spruing, come to open studio on Monday or Friday.  We have set aside a locker where you can leave your sprued flask if you so choose. During investing, we’ll have time to make some last minute adjustments and weigh our metals.  When everyone's done investing we’ll clean up and figure out the pouring order for the next morning.  You're welcome to stay to help load the kiln for its’ overnight burn. 

    On Saturday morning, come with appropriate casting wear (& hair up).  After a review of the days plan we will get everything ready for the pour.  Teams of 2 people will take turns casting until we finish. When all of the flasks are poured everyone can help clean up and show off their work!!

    Casting Club -- $35 

    $5/flask materials fee (please bring cash or check to class)

    The users group meets from noon to 2 p.m. on the first and third Sundays of each month to give people a time and place to work on their Fusion projects or simply to develop their Fusion skills.
