    Vegan burger & sides -Nancy Travis InstructorThere is a growing global consensus that eating a vegan diet is not only good for your health, but good for the animals and a way to help combat climate change. 

    Join us for a week of exploring vegan recipes and cooking techniques as well as discussions about all things vegan in this fun and tasty class! 

    Though the instructors will be driving the theme for each class, students will be helping make the decisions about ingredients in their creations. 

    Day 1
    We start this series with an overview of the week ahead then dive into vegan cheese making!  We will make a firmer, grate-able cheese, a melt-able softer cheese for pizza, and a cheese sauce with a few flavor variations. After which we’ll make a lunch of loaded nachos topped with our vegan queso cheese sauce and fresh made salsa. Delicious!   

    Day 2
    Let’s explore the colorful art of veggie sushi and spring roll creation!  We will explore different ingredients and rolling techniques then finish by making a dipping sauce to enjoy.  

    Day 3
    Who doesn’t love a good burger? Yay! It’s custom veggie burger day!  Each student will create a burger recipe according to your taste preferences. Students will eat, enjoy, and have some to take home and share.     

    Day 4
    Saving the best for last!  We conclude our class sessions with a day of desserts. Students create a delicious (dare we say “healthy”) vegan “candy” bar, along with other vegan “goodies” that students help choose.   

    During class, as time allows and if there’s interest, we will have discussions on a variety of vegan topics.

    This class is perfect if you are vegan, vegetarian or just curious how to make tasty food without dairy, eggs or meat. 

    Participants will also learn the importance of cleanliness in the kitchen. All participants will be responsible for assisting with cleaning BARN's Kitchen Studio in accordance with our restaurant permit standards.

    **This class is for ages 14-18**

    Amaze your friends with your command of GLASS! Learn about the magic of stained glass using the copper foil technique to create pieces that sparkle in the sun.   You will assemble a 5-piece heart as well as another project you choose from several available patterns.  Your choice of colored and textured glass will make for a very personal project.

    Prior to tackling your project, you will learn to hand cut clear glass in straight lines, copper tape and then solder the shapes together into a 10-square design.

    By Day 2 you will be cutting curves and using a glass grinder to finish the shapes of your heart project for a better fit.

    By the end of Day 4 class you will have a good understanding of the copper foil technique for stained glass; how to cut glass in straight and curved lines with carbide glass cutters, how to use a diamond glass grinder, copper foil techniques to assemble glass pieces, tacking and soldering the fit pieces into a beautiful piece.  You will also learn patina techniques to provide contrast and set off the colors of the glass.  A border will be added to your last piece to further enhance the look and provide strength for hanging.

    Students that may have had previous glass cutting and stained-glass experience may choose a more complicated pattern with the instructor’s approval.  The instructor’s focus is on your completion of a nice-looking project rather than the complexity of a project. 

    The material fee covers all materials and equipment required for your project. BARN ensures safe practices and a safe environment for the students; special considerations should be discussed beforehand.

    While working with soldering irons at high temperature, we request you wear cotton or other natural fiber clothing.

    Learn how to work with metal this summer, or build on your metal-working skills! You'll use your imagination to combine scrap parts to make a 'pet' to take home - a dog, cat, bunny, turtle, or whatever you dream up.

    In this four-day class, you'll begin with a safety briefing in our welding and sheet metal shop, then you will learn how to use all the tools you'll need to prepare and build your creations: cutters, grinders, vices, and spot welders.


    Next it's time for you to practice your skills and make your own unique creations with old silverware and other scrap metal parts that have been collected.

    This is a great chance to have fun and learn some new skills this summer!

    Full STEAM ahead!  In this class, we will be combining art and technology to make one-of-a-kind robots out of common materials like cardboard, paint, and paper and bringing them to life through coding, motors, lights, and a variety of components. 

    The class will begin by introducing the robotics kits we will be using: micro:bit and the HummingbirdBit.  We will explore the different components, how to use them and code them using block-coding applications like MakeCode and Snap. Then we’ll learn different cardboard building techniques and mechanisms that can be used for our creations. Students will then choose a theme (e.g. desert animals) and brainstorm, plan, draw, paint, and build their project around that theme. Creativity is encouraged!

    This is an introductory class. No prior coding or building experience is necessary. To keep the costs of the class down, robotics kits will be provided for use during the class time and will be returned to the instructor at the end of the week. Families will be invited for a socially-distanced sharing time from 3:30 - 4pm on the final day of the class to view and take photos of student creations.  

    We recommend students bring their own devices, whether a laptop (PC or Mac), Chromebook, iPad or iPhone. If they don’t have one, we will have a limited number available to borrow during class.  Upon registration, please select 'Using BARN Computer' or 'Bringing Device From Home'.

    Learn to use woodworking tools safely, efficiently and with precision while you build one or more projects of your own design. The pictures show just a few of the possibilities, which also might range from a cutting board or a cell phone amplifier to a shoe organizer or a jewelry holder. Or you could make a toy to give to a child. If you don't have an idea for your project, don't worry: We'll provide ideas to get your creative juices going.

    This class will focus on hand tools and a couple of portable power tools, such as a cordless drill and a jigsaw. You will learn how to "read" a board to choose the best places to cut specific parts, how to use measuring and marking tools, how to choose and use the appropriate saw to cut out parts, how to smooth the parts, how to assemble pieces, and more. This isn't an "assemble-a-kit"  class. You will be cutting, planning, gluing and finishing — and, we hope, getting excited about woodworking.

    Projects are subject to the instructor's approval.

In this three-session class, you will learn the basics of safe handling and use of carving knives the first night, then go on to learn how to deal with changes in wood grain, hollowing techniques, and other concepts as you make a spoon and carve a figure during the second and third sessions.

    This class is open to both beginning carvers and those who already have some carving experience. Each time BARN schedules this class, the carving projects are new.

    Details:

    • Ages 12 and older are welcome. No prior experience is needed.
    • Tuition assistance is available. Click here to apply.

    • BARN will supply carving tools to share, but students are also encouraged to bring their own.

    • You will build your carving skills much faster if you practice between sessions. If you want to work on your carvings during Open Studio times between classes, you must first take our free, one-hour Orientation to the Woodshop class. See the Woodworking calendar for dates. (Use of the shop during these times is always free for members. Non-members can also use the shop without an additional charge for the duration of this class.)
    • BARN is practicing safety measures for the health and well-being of all participants, in accordance with state and CDC guidelines. BARN safety policies are here.

    Instructor: 
    As a third-generation woodworker, Jeff Iller learned about woodworking tools and knives early on. By high school, he was winning ribbons with his wood carvings at his hometown fair. Around 1996 Jeff found room for a shop and he has carved ever since. He’ll carve most anything, but prefers to innovate with the working tools to carve multiple parts inside one piece of wood and to make physically detailed and accurate carvings of women's faces. Carvings on the entry sign to the BARN Woodworking Studio shows the quality of his work.

    Iller says he was taught early on that he could make anything from wood. He is still trying to prove that statement wrong.

    Come on over to BARN after school for Youth Maker Mondays this fall! 

    After this class you will amaze your family and friends with your command of GLASS! Learn about the magic of stained glass using the copper foil technique to create pieces that sparkle in the sun. You will assemble two projects from several available patterns. Your choice of colored and textured glass will make for a very personal project. Prior to tackling your project, you will learn to hand cut clear glass, copper tape and then solder the shapes together into a 10-square design.

    By Day 2 you will be cutting curves and using a glass grinder to finish the shapes of your heart project for a better fit. By the end of the class you will have a good understanding of the copper foil technique for stained glass; how to cut glass in straight and curved lines with carbide glass cutters, how to use a diamond glass grinder, copper foil techniques to assemble glass pieces, tacking and soldering the fit pieces into a beautiful piece.

    You may also get to learn patina techniques to provide contrast and set off the colors of the glass. A border will be added to your last piece to further enhance the look and provide strength for hanging. Students that may have had previous glass cutting and stained-glass experience may choose a more complicated pattern with the instructor’s approval. The instructor’s focus is on your completion of a nice-looking project rather than the complexity of a project.

    The material fee covers all materials and equipment required for your project. BARN ensures safe practices and a safe environment for the students; any special considerations should be discussed beforehand. While working with soldering irons at high temperature, we request you wear cotton or other natural fiber clothing.

    Learn to carve shallow designs so they look like 3-D objects with far more depth — an essential skill if you want to carve a wall decoration, a sign by the front door, a plaque or other relief carving.

    You will start with the basic shape cut out from basswood, allowing you to skip the tedious time needed to carve away the background. This frees more class time for developing  techniques for creating the embellishments that bring a relief carving to life.

    You will be able to choose one or more designs from among those that the instructor will provide. If you've taken this class before, you will be able to carve something new this time. Your materials fee includes the cost of the basswood blanks.
