    About this class

    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 phone that can run iMovie (a free editing software). No experience necessary.

    During this class, you create a short film of two to five minutes. Starting with the very basics of what makes a good story, we work our way through screenwriting, shooting, and editing. At the end, you can show off all your hard work at the wrap party!

    After taking this class, in addition to producing a short film, you will have the knowledge and materials to continue creating short films on your own, whenever you want.

    Details:

    • For students ages 12-14. 
    • Registration closes Jan. 6.
    • When you register your youth, enter their name in the Youth's Name field and enter the parent/guardian email address for "registrants email." All reminders and important information will go to this email.

    Learn how to work with metal, or build on your metal-working skills!

    About this Class

    Use your imagination to combine scrap parts to make pieces of art to take home, like a steel minion, an animal, or whatever you dream up. 

    In this three-week class, you'll begin with a safety briefing in our welding and sheet metal shop, then learn how to use all the tools you need to prepare and build your creations: cutters, grinders, vices, and spot welders.

    Next, practice your skills and make your own unique creations with old silverware and other scrap metal parts that have been collected.

    If you've taken welding classes at BARN in the past, this is a chance to get more hands-on time with the equipment and refine your skills. 

    Get ready to make some sparks fly!

    Make a chessboard using real wood veneers that you cut precisely and laminate in a vacuum press.

    About this Class

    Working with thin pieces of two kinds of wood with naturally contrasting colors, you will learn to cut strips and then shorter pieces to precise widths and lengths. You will arrange the veneer pieces into a traditional chessboard pattern, glue them to a plywood base, and use a vacuum press to provide even pressure while the glue cures.

    Then you will make solid wood banding for the edges, fine-tuning the joints so they fit precisely. And, finally, you will smooth out the surfaces and apply a coat of a natural wood finish.

    Chef Erik Peterson still loves making and eating the egg sandwiches he and his cousin created together at the age of 10. A touch of run in the yolk, horseradish and mayo spread, a thick slice of tomato, and a thin slice of cheddar on toasted sourdough or English muffins = delicious! Since then, Erik has had careers in the visual and culinary arts, which has taken him to studios, kitchens, museums, and restaurants across the country and globe. Today, he is happily operating his personal chef business Island Larder (www.islandlarder.net) on Bainbridge Island.
