    Sketching is an important skill shared by makers across many disciplines! BARN is offering a weekly sketching group for the community to practice and improve their drawing skills. Sessions will include visual prompts and an opportunity to ask questions as you practice. Michael Gunderson, a veteran BARN instructor, facilitates these sessions. 

    Details:

    • Paper and pencils will be supplied if needed, or participants are encouraged to use their own sketchbooks and drawing tools.
    • This activity is only open to everyone in the community! Please register to get your name on our contact list and receive updates about the program, even if you don't plan to come every week. Just drop by when you can, as often as you like!

    Facilitator Bio:

    Michael Gunderson moved to Bainbridge Island after a thirty-plus year career in California Public education. His degree is in the arts and has taught classes in art, jewelry, ceramics, and the trades, as well as serving as an activities and athletic director. He is a founding member of BARN and a past lead of BARN Woodworking.

    Michael thinks of himself as a person who solves visual problems. He proposes a situation and looks to openly create a visual answer, whether it be paint, wood or combinations of media. “Drawing is a language that creatives share,” he said recently. His sketchbook is a companion that he converses with daily.

    *This class has prerequisites; please see below.

    Learn to operate BARN's Laguna CNC woodworking router and go home with an oval lidded box with custom engraving. Open to students who have beginning skills in Fusion 360, this class will introduce you to this design program’s CAM (computer assisted machining) functions.

    At the first session in the ETA Studio, you will work in Fusion 360 to design your box. Starting with a standardized design, you will tweak the design and create custom engraving to add to the lid. At the second session in the Woodshop, you will use the CAM functions in Fusion 360 to develop tool paths for the router, output G code to run the router, and use the Laguna CNC to cut out and embellish your wooden box.

    You will make the box from maple and walnut. With the lid, the box will be 5¼ inches long, 4 inches wide and up to 3 inches high. At the end of class, your box will be ready for sanding and finishing.

    Details:

    • Prerequisites: Orientation to the Woodshop, Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 1 (Multiple sessions are listed on the Woodworking Calendar) and Intro to Fusion 360 CAD. Please login to your BARN account and click on "My event registrations" to ensure you have completed the required prerequisites before you register for this class.
    • You must bring a laptop computer with a mouse and a working copy of Fusion 360 already downloaded to that computer.
    • Please click here for BARN's current COVID-19 health & safety protocols. 

    • You must wear safety glasses and closed-toe shoes, tie back long hair, and avoid loose-fitting clothing and jewelry. We recommend bringing your own safety glasses.

    • BARN is committed to accessibility. Tuition Assistance is available - click here to fill out the simple application before registering for a class. For those who might need physical assistance, please learn about BARN's Companion Program here.

    Instructor Bio: Doug Salot has adopted Fusion 360 as a lifestyle. He has used it to design signs, cabinets, and replacement parts for various broken things. You'll often find him in ETA using the laser cutter or in the woodshop carving things on BARN's CNC router.

    Learn the basic features of VCarve Pro, a popular program used to make signs, engravings, intricate inlays and imported 3D shapes and models on computer-controlled routers. VCarve Pro is easier to learn than Fusion 360, the other 3D design program taught at BARN, and can be used for projects on both the large CNC router in the Woodworking Studio and the small CNC router in the ETA Lab.

    Session 1 will be in the ETA studio where you will use the VCarve Pro software to design an 8x16" sign. You will prototype your design on ETA's laser cutter then in session 2, you will meet down in the wood shop to carve it on the CNC router.

    Please note: To take this class, you need a laptop computer with a mouse and a working copy of VCarve Pro 11 already downloaded to that computer. Download a free trial at www.vectric.com. The software requires a PC or a MAC that has Windows installed. There is no time during the class to download the program. If you have questions or run into problems downloading the program, please email the instructor for help. If you don't have a laptop you can bring to the class, you may use an ETA studio desktop computer with the required software already loaded.

    Come learn about robots at BARN by building your own combat robot. Students will build a 'fairy weight' class (150g) combat robot. Students will choose one of the three combat robot kits to build. Assembly will require some soldering, so it is recommended that students either take the ETA soldering class or have soldering experience before taking the course.

    Students will be given time to test their combat robots with the remote controller provided with their materials. A future course will allow students to bring in their robots to practice competing with others and develop their strategy for an eventual combat robot competition.

    Learn about combat robots here (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robot_combat). You can also see the different types of robots in the fairy class here (https://grabcad.com/library/tag/battlebots) and watch an actual combat robot battle here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ra7FG3G-JZE&t=223s). 

    Details:

    • Students must have soldering experience for this course - we recommend the ETA soldering course on Saturday, September 17th, 2-4pm
    • There will be three kits for students to pick from - first come, first served.
    • Registration for this class will close on September 25th at 12:00 PM
    • Open to ages 13+ accompanied by an adult or 18+.

    This class is designed for makers getting started with the laser cutter in the Electronic and Technical Arts Studio. You will learn how to operate BARN's laser cutter safely as you make a small item. Successful completion of this workshop is the first step toward becoming qualified for independent operation of the laser cutter. It also prepares you for more advanced laser cutting classes.

    The class covers how to prep a design for cutting and engraving on the laser cutter as well as the set-up, settings and operation of the laser cutter.

    Required: Bring a laptop with Inkscape installed. It is the free design software we use with the laser cutter. Click here to go to Inkscape.org where you can download it. There are versions for Windows, Mac OS and Linux. If you don't have a laptop you can bring to the class, please email [email protected] as BARN may be able to provide an alternative.

    Class size is limited to 4.
