    Botanical printmaking involves inking plant matter- leaves, grasses, flowers, etc. and printing it under pressure on various papers. While a fairly simple process, this technique produces beautiful and delicate imagery.

    In this one-day class you will learn how to make prints from plants, and, then, how to turn these images into greeting cards that could be “suitable for framing” and, definitely, for sending.

    • This is a beginner/all levels class.
    • A materials fee of $25 is included in the price of the class.
    • Tuition assistance is available. Click here to apply.

    How many times have asked yourself: “Where is that photo of..?” Is it on my iPhone, iPad, Mac, in the iCloud or everywhere (or nowhere!). Our photo tools are both seductively simple and also hampered by undue complexity / mystery.

    This class will give you a variety of methods to organize your photo library, making and finding images a snap! In addition, you will learn how to get the most from you smartphone camera and options for “publishing” a set of photos for sharing with your friends and family via a book, slideshow and video movie.

    Images you capture with your iPhone can migrate to your iCloud and Mac with the proper setup. A phone is NOT a great place for long term storage for your photos and the size of each image adds up to fill your available storage space. Backup is critical so that you will never lose your prized images.

    Winter is here. Armed with a new understanding of your photo library, you can make your photo collection a joy to share, instead of another challenge to deal with.


    Instructor Bio:

As a bonus there will be a quick tutorial on Moroccan-Spiced Oranges, an alternative end of meal dessert that you can make at home.

      Karen carries a passion for exploring historic basketry techniques and styles and brings this to her work by harvesting and preparing her own basketry materials. She shares her connections to the plants and their remarkable uses when teaching each project. With these connections, each project becomes a unique blend of past and present. “It is with this vision we hope to honor the plants and the traditions they have grown from to give insight to, not only the past but how it can illuminate our future”. Karen teaches ethnobotany programs with the Washington State Department of Ecology.

      She leads basketry classes throughout the county and as well as other earth- centered programs through Earthwalk Northwest, a wilderness school she and her husband founded in 1996. More info at: www.earthwalknorthwest.com.

      Get introduced to 3D printing in this one and a half hour session. You'll get to see BARN's printers and gain an understanding of how they work and what they can make.

      You will see a computer file get readied for printing in a process called "slicing."

      You'll see the different printers we have and learn about filament, the material 3D printers use to make prints.  We'll start a print and you'll see the printer print.

      3D printing has many uses, ranging from practical to fun, such as replacement parts, mold-making, medical models used in surgery, prototypes and more.  

      Bring your curiosity and questions. You can continue to use the 3D printers at Open Studio where a studio monitor or other member can help you.

      Class size is limited to 6.

      Join us for a basketry workshop with Kathey Ervin, one of our favorite instructors, and learn how to create a basket using yellow cedar, reed canary grass, and false embroidery.

      Yellow cedar is often called the 24 caret gold of the northwest. Reed canary grass, although it grows everywhere (often seen in the ditches along roadways), is a beautiful material to work with – it processes and dyes easily.  

      False embroidery technique is used for pattern work and it is worked in as the basket is twined, not added afterwards. False embroidery is unique in that it does not show on the inside of the basket.  

      The first morning will be creating a Tlingit-style twined base, learning folded spoke additions, making the base 2.5 inches across.  Harvesting and preparation techniques will be discussed and a full set of instructions will be included.

      Details:

      • Please note that for this class, cancellation requests received 14 days or less before the workshop start date will not be eligible for a refund or credit.
      • A Materials Fee of $85 is included in the total class price. 

      • Instructor will provide all materials and tools required. If student has a favorite pocket knife – please bring.  

      • Students should wear comfortable work clothes. 
      • Bring a bag lunch. We have a refrigerator and a microwave available.
      • Skill Level: Intermediate -- Students need to have twining experience with basketry weaving.
      • Ages 14+ Welcome.

      Instructor Bio:  Kathey Ervin lives in Sequim, Washington.  After a career as a maker in clay creating mostly dinnerware, twenty years ago Kathey pivoted and began a new career in basketry.  She has gone through various phases of learning, embracing everything from fairly high volume production work, to pursuing her own award winning artistic aesthetic.  Kathey says:  “Every professor and teacher I have ever worked with has talked about learning and ‘passing it on’.  I am passionate about this point, and love the experience of seeing a student begin to pick up a technique, develop it, and then ‘pass it on.”
