Featured Classes

BARN offers both online and in-person classes. See all classes, meetups, and workshops in BARN’s catalog.

Crochet 101

Crochet 101, Monday, July 24, 6-9 pm

This class is for those who have never done crochet before and those who need a refresher. You will start by learning the six basic crochet stitches that are the foundation of all crochet and crochet a swatch to practice them. For the class project, you will make a crocheted headband.

Domino Joiner

Using the Domino Joiner, Wednesday, July 26, 6-9 pm

Learn to use the Woodworkinig Studio’s  Domino joiners, which speed up the work of securely connecting pieces of wood. Mortise-and-tenon joints are some of the strongest, but creating them by hand or with traditional power tools is tricky. That’s why woodworkers turn to the Festool Domino joiner.

This versatile wine is crisp and refreshing, equally at home poured at a fancy dinner or a backyard barbecue. We’ll blind taste Sauv Blancs from France, New Zealand, and beyond, learning about the different styles and traditions.
