Click here to visit our online shops! Link will be active on Friday, November 20.
Buy direct from the maker at this annual celebration of the creativity that happens at BARN. From jewelry to wood arts, basketry to weaving, you will find an unmatched selection of original hand-crafted items. The Bazaar opens Friday, November 20 at 10:00 AM at Bazaar.BainbridgeBARN.org .
This is the first time that the Bazaar has been held online – usually it is at BARN on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. This year you will have until December 15 to make your selections.
Remember that most of these items are one-of-a-kind and will be removed from the site once they have been purchased.
All the items offered at the Bazaar were made by BARN members. Each participating member has their own “store” within the Bazaar site. All proceeds, less taxes and administrative costs, go directly to the artisans.
All purchases will be picked up at BARN via curbside pickup. Pick one of the available times at least 4 days after your transaction, drive in front of the BARN facility, call the number out front and we’ll bring your purchase out to your car.

Designed as a user's guide to BARN ETA studio, this free orientation session is highly recommended for all participants. It will cover everything from studio etiquette and policies to an overview of what we have and where stuff is.
You'll get to see the 3D printers, laser cutter, soldering station, hand tools and more. Overall BARN policies as well as studio-specific ones will also be covered.
Participants will also learn about the leadership structure within ETA and about opportunities to participate in helping everything run smoothly. Volunteer jobs range range from serving as studio monitors to helping with studio maintenance.
This is a two session introduction to Blender, a full featured 3D design tool. Blender is open source (free!) and very sophisticated. It is used for computer animation, game development, and 3D modeling. You will learn the basics: installation, general use of the tool, and explore modeling, textures, lighting and general rendering.
Each of the two sessions are 2 hours in length.
After the first session, students should be able create and render their first 3D model.
After the second session, students should be able to animate, light, and texture a basic 3D model. This will be a hands-on class, so the students will have a good mix of learning through observation and by doing. A 3-button mouse (with scroll wheel) is recommended.
Peter Lucier is a senior freelance multimedia artist and designer in the entertainment industry. He has worked as a toy designer for brands like Marvel and Hanna-Barbera Cartoons and has produced live theater projection mapping content at Seattle Opera and many other live music venues as far as Denmark. Blender has always been a key tool in his workflow.

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 where a studio monitor or other member can help you.
Do you want to learn computer programming, or are you looking for a place to practice and improve your coding skills? We invite you to join our online BARN Coders club on Thursday afternoons! If you’re new to coding, we’ll get you started with the Scratch programming language and support you in your learning process. This class is open to those unfamiliar with coding in Scratch, or those who are familiar with Scratch but want to join in the fun with others.
If you already know how to code, you’re welcome to come and work independently on your own projects, with experienced mentors on hand to answer questions and troubleshoot problems that arise. You’ll also get to learn from your peers and make new friends in the process! This is an intergenerational activity so parents and all adults are welcome. We look forward to seeing you and what you all create in code!
Here is what you will need to have for the class:
1.) A dependable internet connection.
2.) A computer or tablet able to run Scratch in one of the following browsers:
Desktop Compatible Browsers
Note: The online version of Scratch is preferred, but you may also use an offline version which is accessible here - requirements are Windows10+, Android 6/0+, macOS 10.13+, and ChromeOS. FAQ about Scratch are found here.
