Bainbridge BARN Workshops and Classes
Bainbridge Island recently welcomed an incredible new community asset, the Bainbridge Artisan Resource Network, known locally as BARN. Barn is a open intergenerational community hub, built with artists and artisans in mind as a place for people who may not otherwise connect to come together and create. Inside Barn, you’ll find an incredible range of artistic studios, ranging from book binding, fiber, and glass arts, to to kitchen arts, metal fabrication, and media arts–along with a whole lot more. Though BARN does offer and encourage memberships, they aren’t required to attend classes or visit the studios. In fact, classes and workshops at BARN are open to the public.
If you’re looking for interesting classes and workshops to take, whether you want to learn a new skill or enhance an old one, BARN is definitely your best resource. Here are just a few of the upcoming workshops that will be held at BARN, to give you an idea of the possibilities:
- King Arthur Bakealong Lemon Chess Pie
- Roundtable: Screenwriting
- Fiber Arts: “Sit and Stitch” group
- Book Arts: Experiments with Letterforms
- Women’s Shelter Jewelry Project: Community Service Project
- Welding: Handheld Plasma Cutting
- Podcasting Workshop for Beginners
- Intro to 3D Printing
This is but a small selection of the classes coming up at BARN in July. Most of them still have spaces available if you’re interested, and there are plenty more to consider.
