    Join us at BARN each month for an evening of inspiring ideas!  BARNTalks are bringing the community together for presentations and discussion on topics that highlight the challenges, decisions, failures, and successes in life and craft. 

    Our first speaker will be Peter Moseley, who will share a presentation on 'Building a Backyard Railroad'. 

    For many young people, trains are magical, and for some that magic never fades. Peter Moseley is one of those people.

    Join us as Peter tells his "Train Story". We will learn about how he and his neighbor focused their engineering know-how to turn a boyhood dream into reality in their own backyard over a period of twenty years.  

    The Flintridge and Portola Valley Railroad they built was made up of about 1800 feet of 7.5” gauge track with working models of Colorado Narrow Gauge locomotives and rolling stock. The scale of the equipment was 2.5”/foot or about 1/5 size so adults and children were able to ride on it.   

    Capture a little bit of the magic by hearing Peter's tales of how the railroad came to be and his process of making the models.  

    • Please register and bring a guest!
    • The event is free but we will be welcoming a suggested donation of $5 per person at the door.  
    • Light refreshments will be provided.  

    Speaker Bio:  Peter Moseley is a retired mechanical engineer with experience in manufacturing, digital signal processing, lasers, and software.  He's been very active as a volunteer in BARN's Metal Fabrication Studio.  

    If you are interested in being a speaker in the future, please contact BARN Program Manager Jess Henderson at jessh@bainbridgebarn.org.

    Join us at BARN each month for an evening of inspiring ideas!  BARN Talks are bringing the community together for presentations and discussion on topics that highlight the challenges, decisions, failures, and successes in life and craft. 

    Our February event is a fascinating talk about the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, a European research organization that operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world.  Bjorn Nielsen will present a number of stories about working at CERN.  He will share many of the peculiarities about the people and the place, and a bit about the physics done there including some live - or nearly live - results. Bjorn will touch on issues in designing, engineering, and CERN's support of the arts. 

    • Please register and bring a guest! During registration please indicate in the box provided if you will be bringing a guest.
    • The event is free but we will be welcoming a suggested donation of $5 per person at the door.  
    • Light refreshments will be provided.  

    Our speaker:  

    Bjorn Nilsen has a B.S. in Physics from California State University, M.S. From Michigan State University, and a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota.  His research has been in High Energy Nuclear Physics at the heaviest and highest energies available at the time. Most of his work has been in computer simulations of detector response and events.

    He worked on a number of experiments including CERN ISR R110 CCMOR collaboration, NASA's HEAO III's HNE calibration at LBNL, NFS's cosmic ray experiment JACEE, CERN KLMM emulsion experiment, and the ALICE CERN experiment. Most recently he has been teaching at Peninsula College, and is starting a new business to produce physics demonstration and student laboratory equipment.

    Looking for a community service project that will lighten the day for a cancer patient?  

    Work with Carol Latham, the Women's Club, and fellow members of the Fiber Arts Studio at BARN to make colorful and imaginative pillowcases for cancer patients living in Seattle while going through cancer treatment at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Seattle Children's Hospital, and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Resource Center.  

    Patients coming from all over Washington, the USA, and the world for cancer treatment at these facilities stay at the Pete Gross House, a 70 unit furnished apartment complex. This means they often can not bring much from home to personalize their Pete Gross House apartment or make it more cheerful. Getting something as simple as a pillowcase made with love and creativity can brighten these cancer patient's world and make them feel like people care about what they are going through. 

    You don't need to know how to sew to participate in this community service project. 

    Details:

    What to bring:

    • Your sewing machine (if you have one)
    • Fabric that is colorful and fun (per pillowcase: 3/4 yd; 1/3 yd; 1/8th yard) We will also have fabric available.


    Please register so we know how many people will be attending.  Feel free to bring someone with you. Please enter number of "guests" you will be bringing when you register.

    Join us at BARN each month for an evening of inspiring ideas!  BARN Talks are bringing the community together for presentations and discussion on topics that highlight the challenges, decisions, failures, and successes in life and craft. 

    Our March event features the dynamic duo of Walter Dill and Monica Uhl who will share the steps along their journey to have a big impact in the world while living in a small footprint.   

    Their talk will focus primarily on the creative process of transforming of a neglected 1956 Airfloat travel trailer into a spectacular tiny home.  Their rig ‘Talulah’ is packed with incredible custom woodworking elements and thoughtful design details.  

    Monica and Walter will tell tales of the various design challenges they encountered along the way and the lessons they learned through their mistakes and successes throughout the project.  They will show photos of key interior and exterior features and demonstrate how their design choices reflect their character. 

    Even if you’ve never dreamed of living in a tiny space, we think you’ll be inspired by the stories and life experience of this engaging couple. 

    • Please register and bring a guest! During registration please indicate in the box provided if you will be bringing a guest.
    • The event is free but we will be welcoming a suggested donation of $5 per person at the door.  
    • Light refreshments will be provided. 

      Our speakers:  
      Monica Uhl has a formal education in Marketing and Computer Science.  Among other endeavors, she ran a greeting card business and was CEO of a tech creative agency.  Walter Dill's education was in Art and Industrial Design. He co-created Living Traditions Dance, the Pacific Northwest's largest non-competitive social dance business from 1990-2004.  Their website is www.dilluhlsional.com.
