Write Now-- 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.
Additional sessions held on Wednesdays, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM.
This class will be conducted via Zoom. For a great video on how to use Zoom, watch this tutorial. Please make sure you have the most current version of the Zoom software.

In this class via Zoom you will learn about the various ways to make patterns that define the shape of your cast parts. Patterns can be made from many materials including wood, clay, wax, foam, 3d printed materials and even directly into the sand itself using specialty 3D printers. The types of patterns depend on the type of casting process to be used. We will discuss the steps to make patterns so you can cast parts of beauty and utility at the BARN Foundry.
