Welcome to BARN (Bainbridge Artisan Resource Network)

Find out how BARN can add craft and invention to your life. A non-profit makerspace and learning place, BARN has studios for everything from Electronic & Technical Arts to Woodworking. 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.
  • Interested in joining a studio? Visit the studio pages on our website to learn more about each studio and see a complete schedule of upcoming events.
  • Have questions, want to take a look inside the studios, or share BARN with family and friends? Take a free guided tour any Sunday between 1pm and 3pm. You’ll learn how BARN works, and how to become a member.
