BARN will remain closed to members and the public until Kitsap County is approved for Phase 3 of the state's Safe Start plan. The calendar will be updated once we can safely reopen.
**This workshop will be live streamed via Zoom.**
In March 2020, McNeel & Assoc. released the 6.0 version of their software Rhinoceros3D for Windows or Mac. This glitch free, 3D modeling software has been an industry standard for boat design, interior design, model making, furniture design, and jewelry design for 30 years.
This class, taught by a McNeel & Assoc. certified Rhino trainer, Gary Dawson, is a Level I Training for the Rhinoceros3D CAD application, suitable for beginning to intermediate users of Rhino 6. Students will learn to use the command pathways necessary to utilize this software in creating files for use with BARN’s 3D printers, laser cutter, lathes, and CnC routers.
Continuing additional classes in applying Rhino 3D files to run each different tool in the Jewelry, Metal Fabrication or Electronic & Technical arts studios will be required. Please watch studio calendars or subscribe to studio email alerts for upcoming classes by clicking here.

Gary Dawson is owner of Gary Dawson Designs, an online custom design operation that was featured as a “Best of the Best” by Instore Magazine. Dawson has nearly 45 years experience in creating designs that capture the personalities and stories of his customers. "My 'thing' as an instructor, is that with over 40 years of designing and manufacturing, I'm quite keen on passing along the skills it takes to generate digital designs that can realistically be produced. I keep 'Manufacturing in Mind' in my instruction!"
Missing the comradery of the Metal Fabrication’s open studios, or have a fabrication challenge? Until Kitsap County gets approved for Phase 3, please join us via Zoom in BARN’s Metal-Fab Studio for its first Online Open Studio.
The plan is to join a Zoom meeting each Wednesday at 6:30 for a couple of hours to talk about and work with metal fabrication projects. Do you want to observe how to bend something in sheet metal? Can do. Want to observe how to weld up some chunks of aluminum or steel? No problem. Noodling out how to machine some metal or plastic to specific form or dimension? We’ll figure it out together.
We’ve not done this before, but we can make it work. So join us and help in the process. Monitors will be onsite at BARN with cameras and answers. Hope to see you then!
This is a joint BARN and Battle Point Astronomical Association (BPAA) class. In this four session class students will get an overview of “What’s out there” and “How do we know”. The class format will be some general comments followed by one or more ‘curated' video's followed by discussion.
Instructor: Peter Moseley
In this relaxed 90-minute Zoom class we will look at how teaching a craft topic can be designed for the online learning experience. With the help of curated video, guided discussions, checklists, worksheets, and demos, each participant will learn to take their own topic and develop it into a single class (for future expansion into a complete course of study) that will be applicable to the needs of the online learning environment.

This is a joint BARN and Battle Point Astronomical Association (BPAA) class. In this four session class students will learn the parts and function of telescopes, and how to use them to observe celestial objects. Class format will be interactive and will include demonstration and commentary by the instructor with ample opportunity for participants to ask questions; curated videos demonstrating important concepts and techniques; and discussion. Participants who have telescopes are encouraged to have them on hand during class and share them on-screen via Zoom screen sharing.
Familiarity with telescopes and astronomy is NOT required; beginners are welcome!
