    BARN Bazaar Goes Online

    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 .

    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.

    • Wednesday, January 13, 2021
    • 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM (PST)
    • Zoom Online Class, Class Code ME011321MW
    **This workshop will be live streamed via Zoom.** 

    More than an introductory class, participants will learn about Welding Symbols as they appear on construction documents, Welding Rod classification, with special attention to rods most commonly used, basic types of welding joints & terms, and how typically encountered joints are prepared. This class focuses on SMAW- Shielded Metal Arc Welding- commonly known as “stick welding.” Both the equipment (AC welder) and consumables (rods only) required for stick welding are relatively inexpensive, and could be part of a home shop. SMAW is also the entry-level certification for professional welders. This class will cover basics and pro tips, and concludes with a Q&A session so you can ask specifics about a particular project, or about the profession.

    This will be the first in a series of online classes that will cover other types of welding (MIG, TIG), types of materials (aluminum, stainless), and typical challenges. Similar Q&A session at end of class, usually with a "panel of pros."


    • This class will be taught via the Zoom. For a great video on how to use Zoom, watch this tutorial.
