    **This workshop will be conducted via live streaming with Zoom. Class time is PACIFIC TIME**

    Consider five small shallow boxes, each folded from a single sheet of heavy stock. Imagine binding these drawer-like boxes into something reminiscent of a book block, complete with its own cabinet-like case. Inside each of these boxes you construct something mechanical from paper that can be used many ways. You have just built a Cabinet of Paper Mechanical Curiosities—a 4D Whitman’s sampler of movable delicacies, made entirely with paper.

    This workshop removes the restraint of FLAT from the codex page. The first box explores movable paper engineering fundamentals. By adding a sculptural component, the second amplifies a model from the first box. The third is a tiny automata. The fourth contains a classic crankie. The fifth box employs a shutter structure to mysteriously bring an object into view. You will make this movable mechanical magic out of little more than card stock, glue, and simple hand tools.

    Both paper engineering beginners and advanced practitioners will be accommodated and challenged by this material.

    The first session will have a one hour break at noon and resume again at 1:00pm.

    Supplies to have on hand:

    • bone folder
    • steel ruler
    • xacto knife
    • self-healing mat
    • scissors
    • pencil
    • microspatula
    • tweezers

    This class has been canceled. We apologize for the inconvenience.


    Study with University of Washington Printmaking Professor Curt Labitzke. This exciting new class is designed for anyone interested in learning a variety of printmaking processes at home without a press using non-toxic, water-based materials. This is an all levels class, beginners encouraged!

    Long before the printing press was invented artists and craft peoples have used direct printmaking techniques to express themselves and embellish their surroundings. In your own space you will learn how to use stencils, relief printing, rubbings, and direct transfer methods along with hand coloring and collage to create your own individual artworks.

    No previous print or drawing experience is necessary. Students will be provided with a basic supply kit. This class will incorporate synchronous, live learning. Emphasis will be placed upon personal artistic development along with learning traditional craft skills and innovative contemporary drawing and print techniques. By the end of the third session each student should have several finished pieces suitable for framing. 

    Supplies to have on hand at home, not included in the kit.

    Students will need some basic supplies and anything they typically like to work with. These could include:

    A rolling pin or dowel rod of sorts, sticks, textural surfaces to take rubbings from, watercolors, crayons, pencils, tape, glue stick, a variety of thin papers to include, typing copy paper, wrapping paper, magazines, newspapers, water spray bottle, water source/sink, paper towels/rags, thin work gloves, apron, and work clothes.

    Details:

    • This is a Beginner/All Levels
    • Registration for this class will close on Thursday, October 21st at 8:30pm to allow adequate time to process and mail kits. Refunds or credits will not be accepted after October 21st.
    • You have two options when registering: to have a kit mailed to you or to pick up a kit at BARN. If you want your kit mailed, please verify your mailing address when registering. If you choose to pick up your kit, you will be notified by email when and where kits can be picked up.
    • This class will be taught via the Zoom video conferencing program. For a great video on how to use Zoom, watch this tutorialPlease make sure you have the most current version of the Zoom software.

    Culture is defined by our record of creative endeavors. All forms of governance, language, commerce, art, and celebration are born from the imaginative mind. As a community, mankind can do amazing things, but it is often challenging to harness the courage to set our ideas loose into our external communities. In the first of this series, Raffi will discuss the nature of our creative drives, the systems and processes that have been perpetuated to inhibit our creative energies, methods to allow more creative confidence into our lives, and how to release ourselves from the burden of creativity. 

    This live conversation will conclude with a Q&A.

    Print by Ellie Mathews

    This two-day workshop is the whole enchilada: type selection, type setting, paper selection, and ink mixing. Learn the basics of letterpress printing, its language, the tools, and the materials. Dive into the intricacies of the craft while working on BARN’s simplest press.

    We'll start by scooting through letterpress details: working with type, locking up a form, and preparing a project for printing. This is a skills and techniques workshop intended to ready you to work on your own projects with confidence during monitored Open Studios.

    Instructor Bios:

    Instructors are Ellie Mathews and Carl Youngmann. Carl began setting type letter by letter in 1960; Ellie combines her experience as a designer with her willingness to explore the techniques of relief printing. Together, they operate The North Press in Port Townsend, where they focus on the production of poetry broadsides with occasional adventures into ephemera, posters, cards, and whimsies. Working as a team, they will share with you their passion for the craft while guiding participants step-by-step toward taking independent command of the process.

    Bringing together BARN’s Print & Book Studio and Fiber Arts Studio, this two-part workshop will introduce students to the fundamentals of screenprinting.

    Screenprinting is one of the most accessible printmaking processes, and we will orient to the process in a way that makes it practical to replicate in a variety of settings. Screenprinting, or silkscreening, has a fairly short but incredibly rich history of use as a medium for surface design on textiles, as well as a printmaking technique on paper. We will discuss the history of the process, walk through the materials needed, learn how to expose screens, practice different techniques that can be used to create art to burn onto our screens, and, of course, print! 

    Students will leave this workshop with a screen burned with art of their choice as well as whatever they chose to print their art on.

    Materials provided will include photo emulsion, printmaking paper, transparency paper, natural fiber fabric, and a zine (how-to guide).

    Details:

    • There is a materials fee of $20 included in the price of class. 
    • BARN will be practicing safety measures for the health and well-being of all participants, in accordance with state and CDC guidelines. Everyone using the studio will be required to wear masks, wash or sanitize hands frequently, and stay home if they are sick. Please review our safety protocols before registering. BARN wide safety protocols can be found here. Fiber Studio specific safety protocols can be found here.

    Instructor Bio:

    Katey Rissi says, "I am an artist, educator, medicine maker, and activist. My artmaking practice is interdisciplinary and I shift between printmaking, illustration, collage, natural sculpture, textiles, and photography. I am interested in ancestral skills and ecology and these often inform my work. Some themes I find myself returning to in my work include environmental grief, ancestor work, unsettling/decolonization, and what it means to be connected to community and place.'

    Katey holds a BFA in Graphic Design from Western Michigan University with a focus in Photography and Printmaking.

    Instructor Bio:
    Wendy Orville is an artist and educator who was born in New York and grew up in New Haven, Connecticut. She received a BA in Fine Arts from Yale University and an MFA in painting from American University. Wendy’s monotypes have been exhibited at the Tacoma Art Museum, the Museum of Northwest Art, the Bellevue Art Museum and the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art. Her monotypes are featured in the book Singular & Serial: Contemporary Monotype and Monoprint. Wendy has taught at Pratt Fine Arts, The Henry Art Gallery, University of Indiana and numerous other venues. She is represented by Davidson Galleries, Seattle, Washington.  “I was trained as a painter but I’m largely self-taught as a printmaker. I fell in love with the monotype process when I lived in Taos, New Mexico. Something happened when I started making monotypes that opened up a different part of me. I felt genuinely free to experiment and fail, trusting myself to follow the process anywhere it led.”
