I’m a BARN member. How do I get fob access to the Kitchen Arts Studio?2023-06-15T22:02:14-07:00

Due to WA Food & Safety rules and regulations that the Kitchen Arts studio needs to follow to maintain its professional kitchen permit, fob access to the Kitchen Studio is granted on a case-by-case basis by the Kitchen Studio Lead and Barn’s Event Coordinator.

Does the Kitchen Arts Studio have open studio hours?2023-02-09T16:20:47-08:00

The Kitchen Arts Studio does not currently have Open Studio Hours. Occasionally the studio offers supervised “Open Studio” events when both members and non-members can use the kitchen for their special projects under the supervision of a trained instructor or kitchen assistant.

How do I get started/involved in the Kitchen Arts Studio?2023-02-03T11:26:24-08:00

The best way to explore the Kitchen Arts Studio is to take a class! You can also take the FREE Kitchen Orientation course. You’ll learn how to use all the equipment in a professional kitchen and receive an overview on the food and safety rules and regulations required to use the kitchen safely.

Another great way to get involved in the Kitchen Arts Studio is to become a Kitchen Assistant.  Work directly with talented instructors and learn from supporting them as they deliver their classes. For more information on how to become a Kitchen assistant volunteer, see the FAQ listed below.
