Welcome to BARN (Bainbridge Artisan Resource Network)

Dear BARN Community,

BARN is alive again with open studios and a few in-person classes on the schedule! Check the full BARN Calendar or a specific studio calendar for Open Studio and class schedules. As always, required prerequisites in specific studios still apply, as well as all of BARN’s safety protocols, both before and since the arrival of the pandemic.

Even with the new CDC assertion that fully vaccinated individuals can be indoors without masks, BARN is not changing its social distancing and mask-wearing policies for the foreseeable future. We do not want to ask our members, students, or other guests whether they have been vaccinated, and we want all people to feel safe and welcome here.

Check out our summer youth programs and upcoming in-person classes. New classes are being added frequently.

May sunny days and hopeful times continue to increase,

Denise M. Dumouchel, PhD
Executive Director
