    More about the instructor Jane Stafford:

    Jane began weaving at the age of 21, purchasing a new Fanny with the help of a chattel mortgage on her Chevette. Before two years were up she was accepted as an under-qualified, but very ambitious student at the Baniff School of Fine Arts. Two years later she was a teacher’s assistant there and, in a few more, an instructor herself.  In subsequent years, Jane has had the great fortune to be able to earn a living doing what she loves most, weaving, and sharing her passion for excellence in cloth. Jane has been both a production weaver and a workshop instructor, helping students reach their potential across the continent, for over 25 years. She was the recipient of the “Teacher of the Year” award for 2014 from Handwoven Magazine. Jane now teaches exclusively in her studio on beautiful Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.

    If you are looking for a new way to create interesting fabric with your yarn, this class will certainly interest you. While making a lovely scarf, you will learn about weaving terminology, setting up the loom, and how to insert weft yarn to make an interesting cloth. Weaving is a great way to use your yarns in a new way that is relaxing, enjoyable, fun and fast.

    Homework: Prepare the space where you will be working. You will need a clear area that is 72” - 80” long. This space does not have to be on a tabletop, you can stretch over an open space, but need to attach the loom and clamps to a solid surface at either end. If it is possible for your area to be counter height, your back will thank you!  All your yarn and supplies should be close at hand

    Supplies to have at home: Rigid heddle loom with at least 8“ weaving width, clamps, warping peg, 7.5 or 8 dent reed, sley/threading hook,  shuttle, scissors, tapestry needle, tube from inside a paper towel roll, 2 brown paper grocery bags, measuring tape, post it notes, 300 yards smooth, strong, non-hairy, and at least 2 ply yarn that is preferably variegated colors.  Yarn should be wound into balls before class.

    Haiku is more than counting syllables, and you can apply its refined techniques as a literary art to other kinds poetry and prose. Haiku can teach you how to control the sharp image, an emphasis on now, implication vs. explanation, seasonal awareness, objectivity vs. subjectivity, and more. This interactive class will dig into haiku to generate common "targets" (not rules) for haiku in English, and help you improve your haiku or apply haiku strategies to all your writing. We'll also cover some of the history of haiku in Japanese and English, and end with writing exercises plus optional sharing and discussion.

    Photo of cast iron skillet with market fresh vegiesHere in the Pacific Northwest, we have it easy when it comes to finding fresh produce. Local farmers bring in their wares daily to various weekly farmers markets throughout the area with some of these markets running year around. Most of us only have to drive a few blocks to pick up fresh winter greens in January, fragrant strawberries in July, and juicy tomatoes in September. The food is there waiting for us to come and get it. 

    This recipe came about from one of the Shibaguyz’s weekly visits to the West Seattle Farmers Market.

    Get introduced to 3D printing in this one and a half hour session. You'll get to see BARN's printers and gain an understanding of how they work and what they can make.

    You will see a computer file get readied for printing in a process called "slicing."

    You'll see the different printers we have and learn about filament, the material 3D printers use to make prints.  We'll start a print and you'll see the printer print.

    3D printing has many uses, ranging from practical to fun, such as replacement parts, mold-making, medical models used in surgery, prototypes and more.  

    Bring your curiosity and questions. You can continue to use the 3D printers at Open Studio once BARN has moved into Kitsap County's phase 3 where a studio monitor or other member can help you.

    We’re excited to offer another salon via Zoom for writers of ALL levels of experience to read their work to an appreciative audience. All of this takes place from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a computer with a microphone.

    This is a great opportunity to practice reading for your own book signings and a wonderful chance to reach new readers and meet people who love words as much as you do.

    We will have slots for 12 readers to read five-minute selections. Keeping to a prescribed time limit is a skill and a courtesy all writers need to learn. (Of course you don’t have to use the entire five minutes if you have something very short.) Please register for "Reader" soon in order to snag one of these spots. We will also have plenty of room in cyberspace for members of the audience to enjoy some great readings.

    Format:

    1. Brief introductions. (Say your name, what you write, and give us a wave.)
    2. At this point, everyone except the reader will be muted by the host. 
    3. Five-minute intermission. Everyone will be unmuted to chat or do whatever needs to be done.
    4. We’ll unmute everyone, and those who want to hang out can chat for a bit.

    Very Important:

    Everyone who wants to participate, whether as a reader or an appreciative audience participant, must register for this free event. We need your information in order to send you a Zoom link.

    Please don’t be afraid to try this. I had my doubts that it would work until I took part in a Zoom salon with another group. It’s more relaxed than standing at a podium! We had a wonderful time, and it was great to see new faces.

        This "Flow" bracelet is made using only two kinds of beads . . . seed beads and half tila beads which have two holes. The process of weaving this pattern is consistent with other bead weaving techniques with the exception of a more intricate thread path needed to accommodate beads with two separate holes.

        The weave is very accessible and meditative resulting in a bracelet so smooth and flexible that it practically flows around your wrist! The accompanying kit will include everything you need to complete one gorgeous bracelet and have a fabulous time doing so! 

        Kits will include everything needed to make your bracelet. Please verify your mailing address when you register.

        Students will need to have a good working surface and light, reading glasses (as needed), scissors and an adventurous attitude!

        Image Credit: Cynthia LairLearn how to make these delicious seasonal dishes that together create a well-balanced family meal. Bonus techniques learned include: roasting peppers and removing kernels from fresh corn.

        In a time when families are dealing with two careers, longer working hours, and numerous extracurricular activities, the fate of the shared, home cooked, family meal seems in jeopardy. Juggling commitments to make room for shared family meals has rewards!  We know that eating meals together increases the enjoyment of the meal, solidifies family bonds, and encourages communication about the day’s activities. If we are willing to make the extra effort required to share common meals, our lives are richer; solidarity is built.

        Gather these late summer ingredients, and join Cynthia to prepare Fresh Corn Chowder with Roasted Poblano and Fall Greens Vegetarian Caesar. Together they create a simple, balanced meal, full of flavor and ready to share!

        Shannon and Jason Mullett-Bowlsby are the dynamic DIY duo known as the Shibaguyz, the inspired creators of Shibaguyz Designz studio.

        The Shibaguyz’ award-winning crochet, knit, and sewing designs have been featured in and on the covers of dozens of domestic and international publications. Together, the Shibaguyz team currently has over 300 published patterns and 11 books credited to their name since their first design was featured on a magazine cover in 2010.

        Their fashion and portrait photography work can be seen in four of their books. They are sought-after freelance book-packaging designers, having created books for major publishing companies like Sterling Publishing, Leisure Arts, and Creative Publishing. The Shibaguyz have been teaching adults for 30+ years. Their enthusiasm, quirky sense of humor, and relatable teaching style have made them sought-after teachers in both local and national venues like STITCHES Events, Vogue Knitting LIVE, and DFW Fiber Fest. They also have a wide range of online classes available from Blueprint and Interweave.

        Shannon and Jason are proud ambassadors for Aurifil, Clover, BERNINA, Soak Wash, and the Daylight Company. In December 2020 they published their newest book from C&T Publishing, Boro & Sashiko, Harmonious Imperfection: The Art of Japanese Mending & Stitching.

        Have you wanted to write a story but felt overwhelmed by the length of a novel? Have you tried writing a short story but 20+ pages still felt untenable? This class is for you! A short-short story (flash fiction) has two requirements, says author Fred Chappell: “that it be quite short and that it be troubling.” In this generative class, we’ll review the elements of craft employed by fiction writers (with a nod to the craft of poetry) and we’ll read and discuss examples of flash fiction from anthologies such as Sudden Fiction and Flash Fiction. We’ll compose our own flash stories by responding to some in-class writing exercises, which are designed to help you write succinctly while suspending disbelief.

          Picture of jarred canned tomatoesThis is a live, virtual hands-on cooking class from the comfort of your own kitchen.  The Shibaguyz will make cooking fun and interactive. Follow along, ask questions, learn with others just like you would if you were in the BARN Kitchen.   

          Coming home on one of Seattle’s cold, gray, wet days to the smell of fresh tomatoes stewing in a pot with herbs, spices, and a little onion and garlic is always a special treat. In the Shibaguyz’s house, this tasty indulgence is something they enjoy all year, and so can you! 

          Whether you grow your own tomatoes or just found a great deal on a case of deep red beauties at the farmer’s market, all it takes is a few hours to preserve any extra red beauties for future meals.

          Although there are many canning options available, for ease and no fail results we’re focusing on to preserve your tomatoes with simple water bath canning.
