    Jane Stafford’s Online Weaving Guild  for 2021 will focus on Lace Weaves.  BARN is sponsoring watch parties for each episode.  We will break the episodes into two viewings, reserving 90 minutes per viewing.  You will be sent a zoom link one day prior to each session. We will gather online and through the magic of screen sharing,  watch the episode and chat as we view them. You must be a subscriber to the JST guild, per agreement with Jane Stafford.  We hope to be back in the studio at some point, and will set up a "hybrid" model, allowing some to come into BARN and others to watch on-line.

    Details:

    • You can be a beginner or master weaver to join this group some knowledge of weaving.
    • You can register at any time. Although you are signing up for the whole series, you can attend each session or pick and choose the episodes you want to view. We may also decide to view part year's episodes if there is interest. Please verify your email address as this is where an email will be sent with the link to join this online class.
    • This class will be taught via the Zoom video conferencing program. For a great video on how to use Zoom, watch this tutorial.
    • Participants will need to enroll in the Jane Stafford online guild by clicking here. The online guild requires you to join membership for a fee to join ( 2020 price was $75.77 USA) and BARN is not facilitating your enrollment in the Jane Stafford Textiles Online Guild. Once you join, you will also have access to all the past episodes and helpful information posted on the Jane Stafford Textile Weaving Guild website.

    More about the instructor Jane Stafford:

    Jane began weaving at the age of 21, purchasing a new Fanny with the help of a chattel mortgage on her Chevette. Before two years were up she was accepted as an under-qualified, but very ambitious student at the Baniff School of Fine Arts. Two years later she was a teacher’s assistant there and, in a few more, an instructor herself.  In subsequent years, Jane has had the great fortune to be able to earn a living doing what she loves most, weaving, and sharing her passion for excellence in cloth. Jane has been both a production weaver and a workshop instructor, helping students reach their potential across the continent, for over 25 years. She was the recipient of the “Teacher of the Year” award for 2014 from Handwoven Magazine. Jane now teaches exclusively in her studio on beautiful Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.

    Inspired by spring herbs and vegetables available at the farmer’s market, you’ll make a seasonal Springtime Herb Quiche with a Simple Salad that’s sure to be a go-to brunch favorite. The quiche will be in the oven by the end of class and the Simple Salad will be ready for the table.

    In this class, you’ll make one vegetarian quiche and a seasonal salad plus dressing to serve up to 6 (or with leftovers). You’ll learn tips for making your own crust, how to make store-bought better and how to make a more frittata-like version to meet various dietary needs.

    This is a live, hands-on cooking class held in your kitchen via Zoom. Reed will be guiding you through from start to getting the quiche in the oven and the salad on the table. This class is meant to be as interactive as it would be in the BARN Kitchen.

    **This workshop will be live streamed via Zoom.** 

    The instructor Beth Ireland, is passionate about demystifying tools and sharing her love of woodworking with students at all levels and ages. Beth will show you how to substitute a few clamps for the vise on a dedicated woodworking bench so that you can safely and accurately cut pieces to shape. You will learn fine points of measuring and marking, then progress to cutting two kinds of woodworking joints — a through-tenon and finger joints. You will be able to use these techniques later to build projects such as benches and boxes.

    Make a stand for an iPad, cell phone or cookbook in a class designed to inspire and equip you to use easily available materials to make simple things for your home — even if you are an absolute beginner and your only shop space is a kitchen counter or table.


    Included in the kit/materials fee:

    • Enough clear pine to make two stands plus extra wood for practice cuts or your own future projects.
    • A Japanese-style pull saw with a rib to stiffen the blade.
    • Two chisels, 1/4 and 5/8 inch wide. We are including these in the kits so we can sharpen them beforehand, ensuring they are ready for you to use.
    • A simple system using superfine sandpaper on a flat base that will allow you to resharpen the chisels and continue to use them on future projects.

    What you will need to supply:

    You will be responsible for supplying the following tools and supplies, some of which you may already have. Shop for the others at your local hardware store or order online. If you need to buy everything, the total will come to around $80, before tax and shipping, if you order via the links below. It's fine to substitute similar tools from other manufacturers. If you are not sure whether a tool you already own will work, please email a picture to the instructor at beth.ireland@verizon.net.

    In addition, please set up your work space before the class. If you will be working on a table or countertop, have thin cardboard, such as the back of a writing tablet, to protect the surface. Also have a desk light or other concentrated light source so you can see pencil marks clearly and show your work during the class to get help from the instructor.

    Details:

    • Registration will close on Tuesday, April 6th at 3:00pm. This is so we can process and mail kits in a timely manner. No refunds or credits will be given after April 6th.
    • Please register by whether you want the kit mailed to you or you will be picking up at BARN. For those choosing to pick up at BARN, you will be notified via email when kits are ready for pick up.
    • This class will be taught via the Zoom video conferencing program. For a great video on how to use Zoom, watch this tutorial.

    The Writers Studio is happy to announce the revival of Word Sprint-- a weekly time to write in the company of others.

It will be fun, exciting, and might be the thing to help you finish (or start...) your manuscript. These virtual sessions will help participants set aside time to write and be with other writers in an informal setting. 

    The sessions will be led by a rotating team of hosts including Jen Scheiderman, Amelia Ramsey, Kassia Sing, Genevieve Douglass, and Steve Bice

    • You can register at anytime even if a session has passed.

    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.

      Join artist Susan Callan and other fellow artists who have traveled, kept journals en route, and didn’t leave the urge-to-art at home. Perhaps the art was an annotated menu, an adorned map, a hurried sketch of a stranger on a train, or a full-page of paint to capture a unique scene. Art stirs the traveler’s memory to re-live that moment, and the trip. Years later, it draws readers in, providing a time capsule  – in art and words.

      A travel journal can start with either bought or handcrafted books; it can be slim and sparse of content or bursting with your experiences. They are all priceless treasures. 

      Bring your favorite ‘artified’ travel journal to the Conversation. Bring questions, or tips you’ve picked up along the way. We’ll all be enriched by each other’s efforts. 

      The challenge between the 1st & 2nd session? Just for an afternoon, be a tourist in your own neighborhood. Create one or two bits of art. Bring them to life with a few well-chosen words. Build on your past AND the Conversation’s first session. We’ll show & share results in the 2nd session...and, wish everyone a Bon Voyage d’ART on their next trip. 

      These sessions promise to be lively - with comments, Q&As, creativity and laughter. Don't miss it!

      The first session will be a presentation of recent work by the guest artist. The second session will be a group sharing of participants' work inspired by the presentation.

      Around-the-house Materials and Supplies

      SESSION #1:

      • Pen/pencil and notebook/paper... for notes.
      • A couple of your favorite Art Travel Journals***
        *** Showing a page of a Travel Journal: Take a photo of the page, making sure the art is as highlighted as you wish. Transfer the photo to your computer/device. Crop as necessary. Place the photo on your desktop... or however it is accessible when on Zoom. When you want to show it/them, Split or Share Screen, so that the viewers see a clear, steady image you can “talk to”.

      SESSION #2:
      For your “Trip” around the Neighborhood
      • Whatever is in your travel art kit
      • Sketch Paper of your choice
      • Pen/pencil/scissors?/ruler? glue-stick?

      • Flat Ephemera picked up along the way eg: leaf, scrap of paper, etc.
      • Heavier paper/cardstock for a cover (optional)
      • Camera for photos to sketch later

        Wow Mom or a special person with your very own cake masterpiece! In this Master Class, Christine Chapman, creative force of Crumbs Cakery, will teach you how to make the perfect stripes on your cake. In the first part of this class we will bake a delicious vanilla cake, make swiss meringue buttercream and a strawberry conserve. On the second day we will torte, fill and ice the cake. To turn it into something special, Christine will show you how to create colored buttercream stripes on a cake and to top it all off a lovely modeling chocolate peony.

        This is a live, hands-on cooking class held in your kitchen via Zoom.  This class is meant to be as interactive as it would be in the BARN Kitchen. Participants will learn how to make a deliciously beautiful striped cake from scratch.
