    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, students will be combining art and technology to make critters (real or imagined) 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 they 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. Then they’ll learn different cardboard building techniques and mechanisms that can be used for their creations. They’ll be making music videos and clips with their lip-syncing characters that can then be shared with the world.

    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 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 - 4 pm 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'.

    Let’s dive into the world of cake baking and decorating! We will explore how to bake, torte, fill, ice, stack, and decorate a two-tiered cake and best of all you will walk home with your very own masterpiece. 

    Day 1 - it’s flower decorating time. We will learn how to make gum paste and figure out how to make a giant gum paste hydrangea.  

    Day 2 - It’s all about the cake. We will bake a deliciously moist chocolate cake from scratch, wrap and chill it for the next day. Our gum paste will be cured by then and we will make green leaves (cut from our self-made stencils), many sugar daffodils, and more loose hydrangea petals out of gum paste. To give these blooms life we will color each petal individually. These will be set aside to dry. 

    Day 3 - Buttercream! Participants will learn how to make Swiss meringue buttercream to torte, fill, and ice their chocolate cakes. Christine will share her technique for getting straight and level cake sides. It promises to be a messy and delicious day.  

    Day 4 -  On the final day, participants will bring everything together as well as learn more piping techniques to pipe ruffles - horizontally, vertically, diagonally, or make swirls. The cakes will then be stacked and decorated with all the sugar flowers made on day 1. Participants will take home a masterpiece to share with family or friends.  

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

    Re-use, re-purpose, recycle—that’s the theme of this class! You’ll start with repurposing a pair of jeans: get your scissors out, cut off the pockets and pant legs, and invent yourself a tote bag! In the process, you’ll get an orientation and learn basic sewing machine skills on BARN’s new sewing machines.

    You will see how you can use hand-stitching and other techniques for embellishing your bag. From there we’ll share ideas for other projects you can make out of your old jeans.

    You are encouraged to bring old, clean, jeans and other denim to use yourself and share with the class. Any color or weight of denim is great! Ask your family and friends to contribute, too! BARN will provide additional thrift-shop and donated denim, plus materials for embellishment such as rivets, beads, embroidery floss, fabric paint, and more.

    Constance Ducar is enthusiastic about working with beginning students and encouraging a love for glass. She sometimes incorporates fiber or wood as display options with her glass pieces.  

    Nancy Adams:   "I have loved everything glass since I was a young child.  During the 70’s I dabbled in stained glass.  I discovered playing with fused glass at Mesolini Glass and became intrigued with techniques and processes for manipulating the glass.  Retirement in 2017 opened the door for the opportunity to pursue glass experimentation, and to share with others what I have learned."

    Build a skateboard and give it a custom finish in this class, which is open to youth ages 12 and older as well as to adults who may want to make a skateboard as a gift or you can work as a team with a youth and build one together. 

    The class includes an introduction to modern manufacturing; you will see how a CNC router cut the form needed to shape the curves on a skateboard deck.

    Starting with sheets of 3mm birch plywood, you will cut the layers of your skateboard, assemble and glue them to bend against the mold, and press the deck layers together using BARN’s vacuum bagging system. You will cut the final shape and prepare your board for finishing. Through these steps, you will use a variety of woodworking tools, including a band saw, power drill, sanders, and vacuum press.

    On the final day of the first week, a representative of Norse City Board Room, a skateboard shop in Poulsbo, will explain the other components needed to complete your board, including trucks, wheels, bearings, and grip tape. You will then have the weekend and the beginning of the following week to purchase those components. NOTE: To allow individual choice, these items are not included in the materials fee. You will need to purchase them, at a cost of around $100-$200, before the final session. Safety gear, if you don't already have it, might cost around $75. Some safety gear is available thanks to a donation from Norse City Board Room; email [email protected] to inquire.

    Pic of a colorful skateboardWhen the class regroups on Wednesday, July 20th of the second week, you can apply creative images to your skateboard. You will go home with enough waterproof polyurethane to apply multiple coats to your board. The brush-on, oil-based finish requires 24 hours of dry time between coats so it is not practical to do it during class.

    At the final session, you will add the hardware and go home with a completed board.

    Details:

    • Registration for this class will close at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, July 6th. 
    • During the registration process you will be asked if you are making one skateboard with a youth or if you are registering to do a solo build.
    • If registering a youth, please complete and return this minor permission form by July 6.
    • 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.

    Re-use, re-purpose, recycle—that’s the theme of this class! You’ll start with repurposing a pair of jeans: get your scissors out, cut off the pockets and pant legs, and invent yourself a tote bag! In the process, you’ll get an orientation and learn basic sewing machine skills on BARN’s new sewing machines.

    You will see how you can use hand-stitching and other techniques for embellishing your bag. From there we’ll share ideas for other projects you can make out of your old jeans.

    You are encouraged to bring old, clean, jeans and other denim to use yourself and share with the class. Any color or weight of denim is great! Ask your family and friends to contribute, too! BARN will provide additional thrift-shop and donated denim, plus materials for embellishment such as rivets, beads, embroidery floss, fabric paint, and more.

    Ever wondered how these gravity-defying cakes actually work? Well, then this is the class for you! Christine Chapman, owner of Crumbs Cakery, will spill the beans and teach you all of her cake magic tricks.

    Together we will build a reusable 3D armature using ¼” aluminum pipes, wooden boards, wrenches, drills, and glue guns. On the second day, we continue our adventure by stacking our cake and sculpting it into an alien life form. Day 3 will be the day our alien is getting his limbs and eyeballs, and finally, we will use food-grade petal dusts combined with lemon extract to color our masterpiece. 

    This class is perfect for the detail-oriented caker. We will spend considerable time sculpting and transforming the cake into an art piece

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

    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!

    Assemble a classic Fender-style electric guitar, give it your own custom finish, and string it up so it's ready to play — and to display on a wooden stand you will make in this class.

    You will begin by learning about the components of an electric guitar and how modern electric guitars are made using computer-aided design and manufacturing tools. A finishing expert will explain various approaches that you can use on your guitar, and a woodworking instructor will help you design and build the stand.

    To ensure you go home with a working guitar, you will start with a precision-cut body, pre-cut neck and headstock, and solderless electronics. You will need to do final sanding on the parts, decide on the finish you want, and create any special effects, such as a decal if you want to add a custom logo to the headstock. You will have a variety of paints and stains to choose from. The final finish will be a clear, glossy, oil-based coating that you can rub to get a satin finish if you wish.

    To learn more about getting the best sound from your guitar, you may also want to sign up for Electric Guitars: Level-up Your Game, Monday through Thursday, August 1-4. Click here to read more and register.

    If you love to cook and enjoy a challenge, this week will keep you on your toes! Each day, participants will be given challenges that will test their culinary skills and quick thinking.  Participants will get an allotted time to create while having access to the well-equipped BARN kitchen and pantry. Participants can work alone or with a partner. Guest judges will be on hand to provide assistance and of course feedback on the final products.  We will have a basket of ingredients for you to choose from to within our 2.5 hour time limit.  Come ready to cook and work your magic!  

    Day 1 - Spring Rolls - We are testing your knife skills and looking for perfect diverse cuts and sauce of your choosing. They can be fresh or fried, vegetarian, meat or seafood. Be ready to pivot because your competitor took all the ingredients you need!  

    Day 2 - Ramen - Now you know the BARN kitchen and tools - what will fill your bowl of deliciousness? Fresh noodles? Homemade broth? Pickles? 

    Day 3 - Tacos - Homemade tortillas and/or salsas… chicken, beef or vegetarian? Use one of our instapots to make a guisado or beans. 

    Day 4 - Dessert: What can you make in 2.5  hours? With only 3 ovens, you will need to watch your time and work around other participants.

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

    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 star or 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, with copper tape and then solder the shapes together into a 10-square design.  By the second day, you will be cutting curves and using a glass grinder to finish the shapes of your project for a better fit.  

    By the end of the fourth 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. 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 temperatures, we request you wear cotton or other natural fiber clothing.

    Be stylin’ by creating your own look! Design and sew a baseball cap and trucker hat just for you. We’ll start class with an orientation to our new BARN sewing machines, and then we’ll pick fabrics, cut the patterns, and sew and individualize your caps. After your first hat, you’ll learn how to adjust the pattern to fit your own head—or someone else’s—and make additional variations for a hat that’s uniquely yours.

    Note: this class is not about embellishing existing caps. We’ll be sewing caps from scratch. A little sewing experience is helpful but not required. The sewing machine orientation will teach you to thread your machine and practice a straight stitch. Students are encouraged to bring woven fabrics and materials from home to repurpose. Old jeans, shirts, khaki and canvas pants or jackets, and some home-decorating fabrics will work great. BARN will provide additional supplies including stabilizers, thread, hook and loop tape (Velcro), ribbon, and many materials for embellishment such as beads, embroidery floss, buttons, and fabric pens.
