    DIY e-Bike SIG
    There are lots of acronyms in that title, so let’s break it down, starting at the end.
    SIG: Special Interest Group. Basically, that’s a fancy name for a club.
    e-Bike: electric bike. I.e., a bike with both pedals and a small battery-powered motor.
    DIY: Do It Yourself.

    So if you’re interested in making your own e-bike, either from a kit or from scratch, tune in! Perhaps you have an e-bike and want to experiment with some DIY tweaking? You’re also welcome! Or if you’re simply curious, we won’t turn you away either – come take a peek.We’ll meet once a month online, and we might get together once in a while to check out the bikes (and projects) in person. After a short talk, we’ll take questions, problem-solve, and show off our projects.

    Possible topics (subject to change):
    September: Building an e-bike from a kit
    October: Fixing a dead e-bike and turning it into a dual-motor monster
    November: Batteries. Power vs range. Buy vs build. Charging and discharging.
    December: Who needs two wheels? Let’s talk about one-wheel.

    The Writers Studio is happy to announce the revival of Word Sprint-- a weekly time to write in the company of others. Using Zoom to come together, we'll write for twenty-five minutes, take a break, repeat. There is no sharing or critique of your writing, only fast-paced, supportive productivity in the company of other writers. It will be fun, exciting, and might be the thing to help you finish (or start...) your manuscript. These virtual sessions will help participants set aside time to write and be with other writers in an informal setting. 

    The sessions will be led by a rotating team of hosts including Jen Scheiderman, Amelia Ramsey, Kassia Sing, Genevieve Douglass, and Steve Bice


    Details:

    • You can register at anytime even if a session has passed.

    • A Zoom link will be sent one day prior to each session to the email you registered with. Please watch for this email. Signing up does not mean you have to commit to all the sessions.

    Get started on your woodturning adventure with this three-session beginner's class, where you’ll complete small spindle projects as you learn safety, tool control and how to create the basic shapes involved in spindle and bowl turning.

    By successfully completing this class and our free, one-hour Orientation to the Woodshop class, you will be cleared to use the wood lathes for spindle turning during Open Studio. You will also be eligible to take a bowl-turning class, although it is strongly suggested that you spend time turning in Open Studio a few times before you enroll in that class. (Note that you still must take Tool Safety Classes before using other power tools in the Studio.)

    • In Session 1, you will turn basic spindle shapes as you learn about woodturning safety, gouge technique and how to use the tools with good body mechanics — all important to building a foundation to launch your turning skills. Tools you will use: spindle roughing gouge, spindle gouge.
    • In Session 2, you will refine your use of the spindle roughing gouge and spindle gouge, learn how to use a parting tool, and design and turn a spindle project between centers. You may need to sand and finish your project outside of class.
    • In Session 3, you will increase the precision of your turning technique by making a small project such as a honey dipper, finial, spinning top or goblet, with your own design elements. You will be turning using a scroll chuck, and further refine your gouge skills by turning a thinner design with smaller elements. Time permitting, a texturing tool may be used on appropriate projects.

    Details:

    • Ages 14+ are welcome.
    • BARN is practicing safety measures for the health and well-being of all participants, in accordance with state and CDC guidelines. Overall BARN safety policies are here.

    Consider five small shallow boxes, each folded from a single sheet of heavy stock. Imagine binding these drawer-like boxes into something reminiscent of a book block, complete with its own cabinet-like case. Inside each of these boxes you construct something mechanical from paper that can be used many ways. You have just built a Cabinet of Paper Mechanical Curiosities—a 4D Whitman’s sampler of movable delicacies, made entirely with paper.

    This workshop removes the restraint of FLAT from the codex page. The first box explores movable paper engineering fundamentals. By adding a sculptural component, the second amplifies a model from the first box. The third is a tiny automata. The fourth contains a classic crankie. The fifth box employs a shutter structure to mysteriously bring an object into view. You will make this movable mechanical magic out of little more than card stock, glue, and simple hand tools.

    Both paper engineering beginners and advanced practitioners will be accommodated and challenged by this material.

    The first session will have a one hour break at noon and resume again at 1:00pm.

    Supplies to have on hand:

    • bone folder
    • steel ruler
    • xacto knife
    • self-healing mat
    • scissors
    • pencil
    • microspatula
    • tweezers

    Take your scrappy wonky quilt block skills to the next level by adding dimension through panels and framing. This alternate method of assembling scrappy wonky blocks uses charting and your own creativity to create one-of-a-kind blocks that are individual works of art.

    Choose to assemble them into a modern art quilt, display each of them separately, or use them as part of an existing garment or accessory (think patch pockets, decorative mending, and embellishments). The application for these scrappy wonky treasures is limited only by your imagination… and we hope to give you some inspirations during class.

    Come to class with at least three scrappy wonky blocks that are around 6”. Yes, they can be smaller. No, they do not need to be square at all… scrappy and wonky is the point! Just pick your favorite blocks from past classes or assemble one of the patterns in your handout and we will pick up from there at the beginning of class and turn them all into your own personal fiber arts masterpieces.

    Prerequisite:

    Please have a sewing machine and know how to sew a straight line. Students should have taken the Scrappy Wonky Quilt class or have prior experience in Scrappy Wonky quilt construction.

    Supplies:

    • Sewing machine
    • Sewing thread in a neutral color – We use Aurifil 50wt thread for sewing
    • Fabric scissors
    • Thread snips
    • Iron and ironing mat or pressing tool like the Clover Roll & Press or a Hera marker
    • Quilting ruler
    • Rotary cutter and cutting mat
    • Fabric of your choice (random scraps in your favorite colors and patterns).

    Details:

    • Class will begin at 10:00 am and go until 12:00 pm. We will take a break to work on our projects and reconvene at 4:00pm until 6:00 pm.

      Gamers, it's time to get behind the scenes! In this after-school class, students will learn to make retro-looking video games that they can play on their own handheld game consoles. They will be using Makecode Arcade, a web-based coding platform that enables students to create their own video games including the visual elements like characters and backgrounds and all the rules and mechanics of the game, programming everything using block-based coding.

      During the class the students will be introduced to the coding environment; we’ll talk about different games, taking inspiration from them and then the students will design their own simple game (like Flappy Bird, Squirrel Eat Squirrel, etc).

      When the games are ready, we’ll be downloading them into their own Meowbit codable console (included in the price of the class) where they’ll be able to play their game and show it off to friends and family.

      This could also make a great gift to a friend or family member! This is an introductory class where students will learn how to create a simple game and will acquire skills to make more in the future.

      For more artistic-minded students, it is an opportunity to make visually interesting gaming assets and coding them to make beautiful retro-looking games.

      Please Note: Students will need to either bring their own chromebook or laptop, or they can use one from BARN - please select one of these options during the registration process. iPads or phones will not work.

      Come on over to BARN after school for Youth Maker Mondays this fall! 

      After this class you will amaze your family and friends with your command of GLASS! Learn about the magic of stained glass using the copper foil technique to create pieces that sparkle in the sun. You will assemble two projects from several available patterns. Your choice of colored and textured glass will make for a very personal project. Prior to tackling your project, you will learn to hand cut clear glass, copper tape and then solder the shapes together into a 10-square design.

      By Day 2 you will be cutting curves and using a glass grinder to finish the shapes of your heart project for a better fit. By the end of the class you will have a good understanding of the copper foil technique for stained glass; how to cut glass in straight and curved lines with carbide glass cutters, how to use a diamond glass grinder, copper foil techniques to assemble glass pieces, tacking and soldering the fit pieces into a beautiful piece.

      You may also get to learn patina techniques to provide contrast and set off the colors of the glass. A border will be added to your last piece to further enhance the look and provide strength for hanging. Students that may have had previous glass cutting and stained-glass experience may choose a more complicated pattern with the instructor’s approval. The instructor’s focus is on your completion of a nice-looking project rather than the complexity of a project.

      The material fee covers all materials and equipment required for your project. BARN ensures safe practices and a safe environment for the students; any special considerations should be discussed beforehand. While working with soldering irons at high temperature, we request you wear cotton or other natural fiber clothing.

      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.

      The best (and most fun) way to hone your bowl-turning skills is to use green wood for the blanks. In this class you will turn two green-wood bowls, working on smooth and efficient cuts. In the first session, you will learn the best bowl shape for a novice turner, how to safely mount the blank on the lathe, and how to use of a scroll chuck and bowl gouge. You will also learn how to maintain even wall thickness, and how to treat the bowl to prevent cracking while it dries. In the second session, in addition to turning a second bowl, you will learn the basics about balancing grain and which Northwest woods are best for turning.

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

      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.

      This skills class will set a strong foundation for learning new and more complicated knife cuts.  There will be a review of proper knife care, and a short intro into the different types of knives available. The cutting portion will begin with getting to know your knife, mastering your grip, and knowing what to do with your guiding hand. 

      We will review a series of different cuts and techniques including squaring off vegetables, fine julienne, chiffonade, and small dice brunoise cuts. There will also be some demo of other cutting and butchery techniques. We will finish class by having you practice your newly mastered skills slicing and dicing on your own.

      Making a film isn’t as hard as you think! Many people assume that filmmaking requires fancy equipment and expensive software, but for this class all you need is a phone with a camera and a computer (preferred), iPad, or iPhone that can run iMovie (a free editing software). No experience necessary.

      During this class, you will create a short film of 2-5 minutes. Starting at the very basics of what makes a good story, we will work our way through screenwriting, shooting, and editing. At the end, if time allows, there will also be a wrap party where you show off all your hard work! After taking this class, in addition to producing a short film, you will come away with the knowledge and materials to continue creating short films on your own, whenever you want.

      Details:

      • You must have an iPhone or iPad for this class.
      • To register your youth, please enter their name in the Youth's Name fieldBe sure to put in the parent/guardian email address for "registrants email". All reminders and important information will go to the email address you register with.
