    Instructor Bio: Bill Wentworth studied sculpture and industrial design at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, CA, and at San Jose State College, San Jose CA. He became interested in metal work at a young age, and became fascinated by the handiwork that went into the custom-made bodies of Italian and British racing cars. As an adult, he studied drafting and the machine trade, which led to a to starting and operating a company that specialized in architectural metal fabrication. He began his career as artist after moving to Poulsbo in 2004, and opened a studio – Sterling Design – in Poulsbo, Washington. He finds that his attention is repeatedly drawn to the natural architecture of plants, a theme which often shows up in his abstract sculpture. You can see some of Bill’s work at NorthwestSculpture.com.

    TIG welding is generally recognized as the welding technique of choice for artisans and more exotic materials including aluminum and stainless steel. TIG welding is a lower amperage precision arc welding process particularly useful in artwork and metal sculpture.

    This hands-on introduction is the first two of a four-part series. Class size is 4 people facilitating one-on-one learning and direct mentoring. Each participant will have the use of a fully equipped TIG welding station.

    The objective of the TIG series is for you to be able to comfortably weld using the TIG process.

    The class includes shop safety and hazard awareness and proper use of Personal Protection Equipment. There is a brief introduction to welding theory and proper preparation of materials. Each student will go through the set up process for TIG welding on a Miller 215 Welder. 

    There will be approximately three hours of hands-on instruction in making a weld, different types of welds, and torch and filler rod manipulation. 

    At the end of the initial class, students should be able to lay down a good weld bead and be able to attach two pieces of steel in different configurations.

    BARN will provide Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)

    Additional Materials fee of $16 for steel coupons, gas, tungsten, and filler rod will be added to your total when you register for class.

    Participants must wear long sleeve shirt and pants in natural fiber clothing and closed toe shoes (preferably leather or cotton).  Stretch fabrics are prohibited.

    Instructor: 
    Erin Munter was raised locally on the Island. In her 20's she moved to Oakland, California and attended the welding program at Laney College for 4 years. During this time she interned and volunteered at a metal arts school called The Crucible. She returned to Bainbridge Island and began doing furniture bases and other fabrication for Coyote Woodshop. Eventually she moved on to work at an Island fabricating shop as well as teach at another Kitsap area school aimed towards children's welding education. She still currently does fabrication all over Kitsap. Her passion is everything welded including large and small indoor and outdoor household amenities. She also takes part in the local art community with sculptures in local shows past and future.

    In this class you will use the Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, Fusion 360, to generate the Control code (G code) to make the letters for a sign project on our CNC milling machine for the Commons downstairs at BARN. Your work will help acknowledge a major benefactor of BARN and will be viewed by many people.

    You will then use the code to cut the letters out of plastic. This will help you learn the techniques to go from a design to a finished piece by selecting tools, depth of cut, speeds and feeds as well as fixturing. Although this is a machine shop class, this class will help prepare you for using a CNC router.

    This is a Beginners class.

    Class is limited to 2 students. So please register!

    TIG welding is generally recognized as the welding technique of choice for artisans and more exotic materials including aluminum and stainless steel. TIG welding is more difficult to learn than MIG welding.  TIG requires greater hand/eye coordination. TIG welding is a lower amperage precision arc welding process particularly useful in artwork and metal sculpture.

    This is hands-on introduction to TIG welding.  Class size is 4 people facilitating one-on-one learning and direct mentoring. Each participant will have the use of a fully equipped TIG welding station.

    The first step in designing and making any object is translating the idea into a two-dimensional plan, and that starts with a drawing. In this class, you will learn how to add one- and two-point perspective to sketches as you experiment with different design ideas and settle on a final plan.

    This class is for beginners and people who want to revisit their drawing skills.  While offered through the Woodworking Studio, this class will be useful to you whatever your discipline.  

    Details:
    • Open to anyone 14 or older.
    • A materials fee of $10 to cover paper, pencil, pencil sharpener and eraser will be added when you register and pay.

    Instructor: 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 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.

    Learning to make tools is an essential skill for the successful practice of chasing and repoussé. Most tools are fast and easy to make and will enhance your ability to move the metal just how you want or to create a unique texture that can become your signature style.

    Using high carbon tool steel we will make 3 to 5 chasing tools and/or repoussé punches (liners, undercutters, running punches, forming punches, planishers) and 1 to 2 texture tools in this one-day class. You will learn the processes of hardening and tempering to make the tools long lasting. This course includes a very complete handout.

    Details:
    Materials fee of $5 will be applied when you register. The materials fee is for the steel rods, precut by the instructor.

    This is a 200 level class. Students need to have taken at least 2 beginning level classes.

    Please feel free to bring a lunch. BARN has a refrigerator to store your lunch in.
