Our history

BARN began in 2012 as a collaboration between the Bainbridge Island Community Woodshop and local fiber artists, jewelry makers and other artisans.

BARN incorporated as a Washington State non-profit in May 2012 and merged with Bainbridge Island Community Woodshop effective Jan. 1, 2014, assuming that organization’s status as a 501(c)(3) organization recognized by the IRS as a charitable and educational organization entitled to receive tax-deductible donations.
