    Middle Schoolers: Join us for after-school Maker Mondays at BARN this fall! This six-week program will be held in our Kitchen Arts Studio with our illustrious teaching chef Marcela Sandoval.  

    Pastry is a science as well as an art form that requires time and patience. This series will explore techniques to produce pastry perfection. Each session will allow students to grow and develop skills as well as learn the importance of cleanliness and washing as they work.  


    Session 1 - Custards and Cremes

    Learn to make fillings for your favorite pastry.


    Session 2-  Pies and Tarts

    Rolling the perfect dough takes practice. We will learn a simple and delicious recipe and take home an apple galette.

    From Eaten Mess to Macaroons, this class will focus on the art of the perfectly whipped meringue. Learn to use a pastry bag to form perfect treats.

    Session 4 - Cupcakes and Butter Cream Frosting

    We will make and bake light and fluffy vanilla cupcakes topped with a naturally flavored chocolate buttercream. Our piping techniques will be practiced once again and all will bring home approximately 8-10 completed cupcakes. 

    Session 5 - Gingerbread Cookies

    Just in time for the holidays!  We'll put our technical skills to the test to produce and decorate the perfect holiday cookie. 

    Session 6 - Pâte à Choux

    Pâte à Choux is a very different kind of dough which is used from churros to eclairs. Our final class is a culmination of all we have learned.  More piping techniques as well as fillings to produce sweet eclair treats.

    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.

    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+ welcome.
    • 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. (Note that you still must take Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 1 and Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 2 before you can use the tools covered in those classes.)

    Instructor: Bruce Claiborne has been woodturning for over 12 years, enjoying various spindle projects, bowls, platters, and boxes. He is an active member of the local chapter of the American Association of Woodturners, and has been instrumental in establishing the woodturning area of BARN's Wood Studio. He currently volunteers regularly at the high school shop on Bainbridge helping students with the woodturning projects.

      Please join us in welcoming Len Eisenhood, a master paper marbler, in an exciting and productive workshop.  

      In this hands-on workshop, you will become familiar with paper marbling's scaffolding process: paper preparation; mixing and applying paints; combing and over-marbling. You will have a chance to explore the art of paper marbling, and try several different techniques.

      Each student will receive:

      • A packet of pre-alum’d paper (15 sheets of varying size). 
      • Demonstration by instructor and execution by students of three traditional marbling patterns (Italian stone, Dutch Gel-get, and Parisian Non-pareil).
      •  Introduction of combing techniques.

      The history of marbled arts dates back to the 1500's, when Middle-Eastern artisans established classical designs as background for calligraphy or as borders of pages. In the 17th and 18th centuries the art migrated to Europe, where new marbling designs, unique to each country, were developed.

      * This class has prerequisites. See below.

      In this culminating segment of  BARN's Beginning Woodworking series, you will build a small, Shaker-style table suitable as a lamp stand or night stand that incorporates some of your own design elements.

      This class is designed for students who know the basics of using hand and power tools but  want to develop those skills more and learn to take a project through all of the steps from initial idea through finished project. This class includes:

      • developing a design, including details that you select, such as width, depth, height and whether to taper the legs.
      • creating a cut list.
      • fabricating parts.
      • assembling and gluing.

      Details:

      • * Open to students 14+ years old who have taken Beginning Woodworking: Hand Tools and Beginning Woodworking: Power Tools, or who have the instructor's permission. If you want to arrange that, please email using this form.
      • * You also need to have completed our free one-hour Orientation to the Woodshop class plus Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 1 and Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 2. If you are missing any of these classes, please register for them before you sign up for this class.
      • The seven 3-hour class sessions probably will not be enough for you to finish your project. Plan on doing additional work during the woodshop's 30 hours a week of Open Studio time so that you complete your table by the end of the class. Open studio time is always free for BARN members. Non-members can also use Open Studio to work on class projects without an additional fee.
      Instructor: Ted Newman. Ted studied woodworking and assisted in classes at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine. He is active in BARN's woodworker group and volunteers as a safety monitor.

      Come build your own state-of-the-art electro-mechanical ferry tracking apparatus: FerryClock; a self-setting analog wall clock with additional dials and lights to indicate the real-time position, heading, and docking status of the two Bainbridge-Seattle ferryboats. It should prove ferry useful in your own home. Additional routes coming soon…

      From a kit, we will assemble, wire and solder the gadgets. At home, you will ‘launch’ your FerryClock by connecting it to your wireless network (internet). The kit includes everything you’ll need: laser-cut parts, motors, lights, wires, hardware, microcontroller, USB cable, ‘atomic’ clock mechanism, hands, battery, and literature.

      How It Works:

      A proprietary algorithm (conceived by a member of the BIHS robotics team) running in the ‘cloud’ continually compares the up-to-the-minute (every 15s) latitude/longitude (GPS) location of a real ferryboat (via the WSF API) against a reference path to generate a precise sailing progress value. A small, Arduino-compatible microcontroller within FerryClock connects to the FERRY TEMPO server over WiFi to receive fresh data, controlling the lights and motors accordingly.


      Details: 

      • This class has been extended with an additional hour from past classes.
      • Requires a wireless internet connection to operate.
      • No previous soldering skills required.
      • Materials fee of $95 is included in the price of class.
      • Skill Level: Universal
      • Ages 14+ Welcome

      This class has prerequisites. Please see details.

      Do you want to cast outside of class? 

      Come be a part of Jewelry Studio 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.

      Details:

      • Your payment for the class includes 2 flasks equal to 500 grams of investment.
      • If you choose to cast more than 2 flasks, bring cash to pay for extra investment used.  We have a cost chart posted for easy reference.
      • Bronze or Sterling are the most often cast materials. 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. (You can cast in gold if you choose )

      PREREQUISITES and Requirements for Casting Club:

      • You need to have taken at least one lost wax centrifugal casting class in the last year 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.)
      • To participate you must be 18 years or older (special circumstances must be cleared with the Jewelry Studio beforehand)

      What To Expect:

      Session 1, 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. 

      Session 2, 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!!


      • 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.

      Get a good foundation in carving techniques, including push, stop and draw cuts. In this three-session class, you will learn the basics of safe handling and use of carving knives the first night, then go on to learn how to deal with changes in wood grain, hollowing techniques, and other concepts as you make a spoon and carve a figure during second and third sessions.

      This class is open to both beginning carvers and those who already have some carving experience. Each time BARN schedules this class, the carving projects are new.

      Details:

      • Open to ages 8 and older, although those 12 and under must have an adult with them. No prior experience is needed.
      • BARN will supply carving tools to share, but students are also encouraged to bring their own.
      • You will build your carving skills much faster if you practice between sessions.  If you want to take advantage of Open Studio, you must first take our free, one-hour Orientation to the Woodshop class. Open Studio and Hand Tool Nights are always free for members. Non-members can also participate without additional charge while working on a class project.

      Instructor: As a third-generation woodworker, Jeff Iller learned about woodworking tools and knives early on. By high school, he was winning ribbons with his wood carvings at his hometown fair. Around 1996 Jeff found room for a shop and he has carved ever since. He’ll carve most anything, but prefers to innovate with the working tools to carve multiple parts inside one piece of wood and to make physically detailed and accurate carvings of women's faces. Carvings on the entry sign to the BARN Woodworking Studio shows the quality of his work.

      Iller says he was taught early on that he could make anything from wood. He is still trying to prove that statement wrong.

      The Lampworking Basics class is an introduction to working with the torches and tools available in the Glass Arts Studio. The instructor will demonstrate and then guide you through very basic torchworking skills.  

      You will have time to practice pulling stringer from rod, creating a bead, or just melting glass to create shapes. This class also covers personal safety while operating the torches as well as studio safety and operational policies of the Glass Arts Studio.

      Successful completion of this class will allow you to use the torches in the Studio during Monitored or Open Studio Access for your own projects.

      This is a one-day class. Any items left for annealing (heating the glass) can be picked up the next day. The class is 4 ½ hours long allowing time for a break.  You are encouraged to bring a snack.

      The material fee covers the cost of glass rods and a fresh tank of liquid oxygen.

      Tuition assistance is available. Click here to apply.
