    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 the 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 12 and older. 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 work on your carvings during Open Studio times between classes, you must first take our free, one-hour Orientation to the Woodshop class. See the Woodworking calendar for dates. (Use of the shop during these times is always free for members. Non-members can also use the shop without an additional charge for the duration of this class.)

    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.

    Have you longed to make a classic, Oxford-style button-down-collar shirt for that special someone but didn’t know where to start? Start here! If you can sew a straight line, you can sew a classic shirt with all the fixin's!

    In this course, you will learn how to make knife-sharp collar points and tidy collar bands, how to match prints across center front, topstitch the yoke, attach two-piece sleeve plackets, sew cuffs that look great inside and out, and make easy flat-felled seams and rolled, curved hems. You'll discover the best interfacing for shirt sewing, efficient layout and cutting, notable notions, sewing fundamentals, how to "chunk it up" for speedy sewing order of operations, and how to choose specialty sewing feet (and know whether you need them) . . . and more!

    Leah will demonstrate each part of making an entire shirt over three, 2-hour Zoom sessions. Sew along with her, or just sit back, relax, and learn. You'll have plenty of time to ask questions and watch each technique. And at the end of class you’ll have LOTS of resources: access to the recorded class plus individual, step-by-step video tutorials on Leah’s Away We Sew website, plus pdf handouts with professional, full color illustrations (a $30 value). You'll have skills to sew any kind of shirt, and you'll be confident that you can sew a classic, Oxford-style button-down-collar shirt IN A WEEKEND!

    Supplies: 

    Choose one of these shirt patterns for the class:

    • FreeSewing.org: “Simon" (men's styling) or "Simone" (women's styling)—available free online as a pdf (highly recommended!)
    • Liesl Pattern Co.: “The Classic Shirt"  (women's styling)—available on paper at Esther's Fabrics on Bainbridge Island
    • Thread Theory: “Fairfield Button Down" (men's styling)—available on paper at Esther's

    You'll also need fabric, thread, buttons, and interfacing as needed for your size, as noted on the pattern. Leah recommends ProWOVEN Shirt-Crisp interfacing from Fashion Sewing Supply but any lightweight or shirt-weight interfacing you find in a fabric store or online will work. 

    If you're planning to join along, set up your Zoom in your cutting space and have your fabric laundered and both your interfacing and fabric ready to cut!

    Note: If you go into Esther's Fabrics store, mention that you're buying supplies for this class when you check out at our partner, Esther's Fabrics, at 181 Winslow Way East, Suite D on Bainbridge Island and you'll receive a 10% discount! Esther's Fabrics has the Liesl and Thread Theory patterns in stock, plus many beautiful shirting fabrics, quilting cottons, rayons, flannels, and an excellent selection of specialty shirt buttons!

    Help build a Tiny House for one of the Tiny House Villages that are providing warm, secure shelter to homeless people in Puget Sound communities.

    BARN is partnering with the Low Income Housing Institute in Seattle on this community service project. LIHI, a non-profit organization, is providing plans and materials; BARN will provide the volunteer labor. LIHI currently operates eight Tiny House Villages with 442 houses in Seattle, Olympia and Tacoma. Five more villages with 173 units are scheduled to open this year in Skyway, Bellingham and Seattle.

    The houses are insulated and dry, but they don't have kitchens or bathrooms. Each village provides shared dining and bathing facilities. 

    The plan is to build BARN's first house over four sessions in June. BARN members with experience in residential construction will supervise the work of up to eight other volunteers each day. Volunteers of all skill levels are welcome to participate. Besides helping people who need housing, volunteers will also learn how to build a small building using a variety of tools.

    Details:

    • Ages 14+ are welcome.
    • Participation is free but you must register because team size is limited.
    • To give volunteers flexibility in scheduling their time, each shift has a separate signup. You can sign up for one, some or all of them. (All sessions are 1-5 pm.)

    Because they cut fast and loud, routers can be one of the scariest woodworking tools. But they are also one of the most versatile. With a router, you can create your own molding for picture frames, cut joints, detail edges, create inlays, make multiple matching parts, and much more. Whole books are written about routers and what they can do.

    This class focuses on the basics and safe practices so you can confidently set up and use both hand-held routers and table-mounted routers. The class is limited to four students to ensure hands-on time for everyone.

    At the first session, you will learn how to use the router table safely. You will change router bits, adjust the fence, and run softwood and hardwood samples, to see how the effects vary. While the class won't focus on creating a project, you will wind up with skills that you can use later to create picture frames or  other projects.

    The second session will focus on hand-held routers. You will learn about the different types and will install and adjust edge bits. You will shape edges and create edge rabbits.

    Details:

    • Ages 14+ are welcome.
    • * Open to those who have taken Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 2.
    • Tuition assistance is available. Click here to apply.

    Instructor: Don Johnson has been using routers for more than 30 years to create a variety of furniture pieces and table stands. He especially appreciates the way using a router adds a level of sophistication to any wood project  He's  found that routers are perfect for creating rabbits for glass or stone insets.

    The Writers Studio is happy to announce the revival of Word Sprint-- 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


    Details:

    • We have added a new Word Sprint Tuesdays to our calendar as a new set of sessions starting July 6th. Please register for this new set of sessions again if you want to continue to attend. To register, click here. The Zoom link will remain the same as this one.

    • A Zoom link will be sent one day prior to each session to the email you registered with. Please watch for this email. Signing up does not mean you have to commit to all the sessions.

    *This class is for invited past registrants of the "Intro to Laser Cutter" class. A Registration code is required and has been emailed to past students. We will be offering this class to the public starting in July.


    https://lightburnsoftware.com/

    Learn the basic features of LightBurn, essential software that controls both of our new laser machines. This is the software you'll use whether you are quickly cutting out some parts for your project or are fine tuning your complex etching. LightBurn software replaces RetinaEngrave you may have used previously.

    This class will get you started and will help you implement your own creative laser designs. This class is not a substitute for "Intro to the Laser Cutter".

    Who should take this class?

    If you took "Intro to the Laser Cutter" on the Full Spectrum Laser, this class can get you up and running with our new laser cutters. If you've taken "Intro to the Laser Cutter" on the new lasers and are ready to see how to get more from LightBurn, this class is for you. If you used Inkscape and RetinaEngrave with the FSL and didn't like the software, this class is for you. If you loved using Inkscape and RetinaEngrave, you'll learn how LightBurn fits into your workflow.

    The class covers the basics of LightBurn in the laser cutter workflow. It also covers setting laser parameters for cutting and engraving, importing your designs, vector graphics (line art) vs raster graphics (pixel art), manipulating shapes and tuning images, using the laser libraries, and previewing your work.



    Prerequisite: Intro to Laser Cutter

    Class size is limited to 4.

    • Students should bring a laptop with LightBurn downloaded: https://lightburnsoftware.com/pages/trial-version-try-before-you-buy
    • BARN will be practicing safety measures for the health and well-being of all participants, in accordance with state and CDC guidelines. Students and instructors will be required to wear masks, wash or sanitize hands frequently, maintain a distance of six feet between individuals, and stay home if they are sick.

    This class has prerequisites. See below.

    Learn the basics of designing and building Euro-style cabinets, also known as frameless cabinets, as you build one cabinet with the dimensions and combination of drawers and/or shelves that you want.

    The class will start with an overview of cabinet styles, with an emphasis on Euro-style cabinets and their components. There will also be a discussion about cabinet materials and useful tools. At the first session, you will also sketch the cabinet you want to build and learn how to make a cut list and estimate the materials you will need. You will be asked to pay for the materials so that they can be ordered and delivered before the second session. Bring approximate dimensions to the class!

    At the remaining sessions, you'll build your cabinet. You'll learn how to accurately and safely cut down sheets of plywood and how to assemble the pieces into sturdy, square cabinet boxes. You'll also learn how to add components: shelves, doors and drawers. You'll have to install the cabinet on your own after the class, but the class will teach you the process.

    Details:

    • Prerequisites: This is an intermediate-level class, open to people ages 14+ who have taken Orientation to the Woodshop and Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 1 & 2.
    • PLEASE NOTE: The materials fee included in the registration fee covers only shop supplies. Please bring a credit or debit card to the first session so you can pay then for the plywood needed for your design. A typical cabinet requires one sheet of plywood, but what you need might vary depending on your design. Prefinished birch plywood, the least expensive option, costs around $80 a sheet; prefinished maple is about $125. Unfinished plywood is around $70 for birch and $110 for maple.

    Instructors: Dave Whitacre, Scott Weigle and Wayne Chang.

    Dave moved to Bainbridge in 2013 after he retired as a petroleum engineer in Alaska. Woodworking has been his hobby for the past 40-plus years. He's enjoyed designing and building traditional-styled furniture and hopes to broaden his skills and techniques now that he has more time to devote to the craft.

    Scott has been a woodworker since his early days in a high school shop class.  He looks  forward to sharing his joy of wood, tools and the creative process with participants in this introductory course, and he bets you will discover there is no better place than the BARN to exercise your creativity with this amazing medium.

    Wayne enjoys the challenge and problem solving that goes along with woodworking. In the past, most of his woodworking involved rebuilding his 100-year-old house. Now it revolves around anything that his daughter asks him to build. He also coordinates the community service projects done in the Woodworking Studio.

    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.

    Welcome back to Print & Book Arts Open Studios. We are starting with a limited Open Studio schedule but will be adding dates as Studio Monitors are trained. If you are interested in becoming a Studio Monitor please contact Amy Goldthwaite, printandbook.lead@bainbridgebarn.org

    You will need to register for the Open Studio, as we have a set number of artisans that can be in the work space at one time. Open studios are for BARN Members only at this time.

    The Print & Book Arts Studio will be practicing safety measures for the health and well-being of all participants, in accordance with state and CDC guidelines. Everyone using the studio will be required to wear masks, wash or sanitize hands frequently, keep a physical distance of six feet from others and stay home if they are sick. Please review our safety protocols before registering. You will find the links in the "Important Details" section below.

    You are welcome to attend the Print & Book Arts Open Studios, regardless of the type of book or printing project you have in mind. Each session will have a monitor on hand to answer questions. All studio equipment is available but participants must be certified on any press they plan to use. Time is limited to three hours per session; the last half hour being devoted to cleanup.  We will expand the hours as Covid 19 restrictions allow.

    Important Details:

    • You must register. No drop-ins please. 
    • Please read the Print & Book Arts Studio specific safety protocols here.
    • BARN-wide safety protocols can be found here.
    • There are 4 spots available per open studio to maintain safety protocols. Please click "Join Waitlist" if this open studio fills. If a spot becomes available we will notify you via email. Please register for only two sessions per week.
    • There is a possibility that an Open Studio may be canceled if Kitsap County has an increase in Coronavirus numbers. You will be notified via email should we need to cancel.
    • If you have questions, please email Print & Book Arts program coordinator Amy Goldthwaite, printandbook.lead@bainbridgebarn.org.
