BARN Metal Fabrication Annual Meeting
Monday, February 24th
Featured speaker, Jim Henderson
6-8 PM… yes, that’s dinnertime. So, bring something for yourself to eat. Coffee and light snacks will be provided.
This presentation is free and open to the public. Bring a friend!
Our featured speaker, Jim Henderson will talk about his 7+ years leading the fitting, testing, and sea trials of Pagoo, Paul Allen’s manned submarine, and its deployment to Octopus, his yacht.
Following Jim’s presentation will be a short business meeting where we’ll talk about what’s going on in the Welding, Sheet Metal, and Machine shops, as well as the Forge and Foundry shops at Alchemy Industrial Arts.
If you have any interest in making art in metal, or working a project that requires metal working skills, this event is for you.
Join us at BARN each month for an evening of inspiring ideas! BARN Talks are bringing the community together for presentations and discussion on topics that highlight the challenges, decisions, failures, and successes in life and craft.
Our March event features the dynamic duo of Walter Dill and Monica Uhl who will share the steps along their journey to have a big impact in the world while living in a small footprint.
Their talk will focus primarily on the creative process of transforming a neglected 1956 Airfloat travel trailer into a spectacular tiny home. Their rig ‘Talulah’ is packed with incredible custom woodworking elements and thoughtful design details.
Monica and Walter will tell tales of the various design challenges they encountered along the way and the lessons they learned through their mistakes and successes throughout the project. They will show photos of key interior and exterior features and demonstrate how their design choices reflect their character.
Even if you’ve never dreamed of living in a tiny space, we think you’ll be inspired by the stories and life experience of this engaging couple.
Monica Uhl has a formal education in Marketing and Computer Science. Among other endeavors, she ran a greeting card business and was CEO of a tech creative agency. Walter Dill's education was in Art and Industrial Design. He co-created Living Traditions Dance, the Pacific Northwest's largest non-competitive social dance business from 1990-2004.

Looking for a community service project that will lighten the day for a cancer patient?
Work with Carol Latham, the Women's Club, and fellow members of the Fiber Arts Studio at BARN to make colorful and imaginative pillowcases for cancer patients living in Seattle while going through cancer treatment at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Seattle Children's Hospital, and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Resource Center.
Patients coming from all over Washington, the USA, and the world for cancer treatment at these facilities stay at the Pete Gross House, a 70 unit furnished apartment complex. This means they often can not bring much from home to personalize their Pete Gross House apartment or make it more cheerful. Getting something as simple as a pillowcase made with love and creativity can brighten these cancer patient's world and make them feel like people care about what they are going through.
You don't need to know how to sew to participate in this community service project.
