    It’s easy enough to send out to have polymer plates made, but wouldn’t you like the control (and economy) of making your own? Learn the process in this one-day workshop. Carl Youngmann and Ellie Mathews, letterpress printers, will demonstrate do-it-yourself, U-V exposure, water-wash methods for producing raised images using BARN’s materials and updated equipment.

    We’ll start by discussing high-contrast images—whether from photographs, digital files, or scanned drawings. We’ll then select an example and make an inkjet negative. We'll use the negative to expose the polymer to UV light, and we’ll process it in ordinary tap water. Then we’ll print proof copies. Specific products, timing, and details will be outlined.

    You are invited to bring one or more high-contrast (black and white—no grays) images for your own use. Instructors will also provide a selection of sample images.

    There is no prerequisite for this workshop. Everyone is welcome.

    Details:

    • Please bring a lunch. We have a kitchen on the lower floor next to the Print & Book Arts studio with a refrigerator and microwave.

    Instructors Bio:
    Ellie Mathews began using photopolymer plates forty years ago to make Braille signage. More recently, Carl Youngmann has figured out the intricacies of printing ink-jet negatives, exposure times, and washout temperatures to make his own plates at home, sometimes by using nothing more complicated than the sun as his light source. Together, they will guide you through the basics and share their enthusiasm for DIY methods.

    Shellac plate printmaking example

    Shellac Plate printmaking is a low-tech and versatile technique for creating etching-like intaglio prints as well as subtly textured collographs. Through demos and lots of hands-on work we will create and print plates using shellac on an illustration board matrix. Students will be encouraged to experiment with the wide range of effects that can be achieved with shellac plates to express their own visual ideas and aesthetic. 

    Some printmaking experience is useful but is not necessary.


    Supplies Needed:

    • Apron or smock. These are also available to borrow in the studio.
    • Sketchbook or notebook - any size or type
    • Optional: any etching tools or mark making tools that you like to use; any specific reference imagery you like to work from


    Details:

    • A $35 materials fee is included in the price of the class.
    • Feel free to bring a lunch. BARN has a refrigerator and microwave in the kitchen on the lower level.

    Registration on this page is for the workshop being held at BARN. The simultaneous online Zoom version can be found here.

    Nothing is as important to a professional artist's or designer's career as a carefully created portfolio. Yet very few people have one that they're proud to show. Something always seems to get in the way of sitting down and figuring out just how you want to define your work, what you want to focus on, and whom you want to attract with a curated group of pieces you've made. Whether you're blowing the dust off your old portfolio, or creating a new one from scratch, this class takes you through the process of creating a strong portfolio step-by-step, identifying concrete objectives, finding holes that need to be filled, and providing encouragement and review along the way.

    High schoolers applying to college, people applying to grad school, recent grads about to start the job search, people applying for a job in a design field or in academia, or artists who want to get their work into viewable order either physically or online--all need up-to-date portfolios-- and all are welcome.

    * This class has prerequisites. Please see below.

    If you have a work of art that you’ve been wanting to frame, this class is for you. At the first session, in the Woodworking Studio, you will learn to design, cut and assemble a frame 11 by 14 inches. At the second session, in the Woodworking Studio, professional framers will show you how to properly mat a picture to fit that frame, and how to put all the pieces together in expert fashion.

    Bring a picture or drawing you want to frame. It can be any size that will fit in an 11x14 frame. (Small pictures look great in a big mat and frame!) The goal of this class is to enable you to return to the BARN Woodworking and Print & Book Studios to frame additional artwork.

    Details:

    • Ages 14+ are welcome.
    • Prerequisites: To take this class, you must first complete Orientation to the Woodshop, Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 1 and Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 2. Multiple classes are listed on the Woodworking Studio calendar. You can also log in to your BARN account and view your past events you have registered for to ensure you have completed these prerequisites.
    • 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.

    Instructors: Mike Toot, Katherine Hanson and Crista Dougherty. Toot is a safety monitor at BARN and has spent many hours building parts for boats and running trim for his previous home. While he likes hand tools best, he gladly reaches for power tools to help get a project assembled. Hanson was employed for 25 years as a professional framer for the Roby King Gallery. When that store closed its frame shop, she went to Julie's Frame Gallery. She and Dougherty work there now.

    Do you dream of earning money as an artist? Make that dream a reality by learning how to market your artwork to reach a bigger audience! No matter what your medium is, you can use tips and tricks from the marketing trade to make your art shine on a bigger stage. From jewelry-makers to woodworkers, illustrators and digital artists, textile crafters, and mixed media creators, you can sell your craft by getting in front of the right people — with the right price and the right message!

    In this four-session class, you’ll learn:

    • How to create a brand with your own style
    • How to price and position your art for the right audience
    • How to photograph and/or present your art so that it sells
    • How to create an Etsy page
    • How to get people to see your Etsy page
    • How to switch things up if your art is not selling
    • How to officially start a business (and pay taxes) if you start making serious money
    • To get you up and running in just four days, there will be some fun homework with this class.

    Note: This class is tailored to students 12-18 who have an established art or craft they feel confident about. Participants should bring their own tablet or smartphone and will be required to download a subscription-based design software called Canva (which has a limited free version available). Participants will also be asked to use existing social media and email accounts to promote their materials, though this is optional if they don’t have them or don’t want to use them for promotional purposes. Finally, they will also be creating an Etsy account, which will require a credit card in order to go live (this is part of their class homework).
