Bainbridge Artisan Resource Network — “BARN”—is a non-profit formed to build and operate an artisan center on Bainbridge Island. We’re currently operating out of a temporary facility in Bainbridge Island’s Rolling Bay neighborhood.
BARN’s future home will have 11 well-equipped studios for traditional and 21st century crafts, ranging from metalworking, fiber arts and cooking to building robots and using 3-D printers or laser cutters to make complex parts. There will be classes for all skill levels, as well as open studio time where people can learn informally from one another while working on personal and community service projects.
The new BARN facility will open in June 2017 at 8890 Three Tree Lane, Bainbridge Island, WA.
When craft is the common language, seasoned veterans and people just starting out have a lot to learn from one another. Here, BARN Woodworker Peter Eddy gives a few wood turning tips to student Jonathan Gallivan.
