Welcome to BARN (Bainbridge Artisan Resource Network)

Dear BARN community:

In compliance with Governor Inslee’s guidance to stay home as much as possible, BARN is no longer holding open studio sessions or in-person classes of any sort, through February 28.

On the other hand, BARN’s online classes are gaining an enthusiastic following! And community service projects responding to the pandemic, such as BARN Bites, will continue along with a handful of other service projects, with permission. May this slow-down prove to curb the spread of the virus!

With fervent hopes for your well-being,

Denise M. Dumouchel, PhD
Executive Director

Take a class, work on a project, or come to share your knowledge with others. BARN is a unique place where well-equipped studios invite exploration and innovation.
• Everyone is welcome – you do not need to be a BARN member to participate. Taking a class is a great way to learn more about a studio and meet others who share your interests. All classes are open to ages 14 and up.
