After you arrive on the Island, we'll meet at BARN and I'll give you a tour of the 11 artisan studios. We'll visit the light-filled Jewelry studio, where students learn casting and stone setting and many other jewelry skills. Then we'll see the Metal Fabrication area, with its computer driven metal machines and welding equipment. From there it's on to the BARN Kitchen, and the Writers' studio where members may be working on their next novel. In the Printmaking Studio we'll see the large Takach etching press, as well as a vintage letterpress. In Fiber Arts we'll see the large collection of floor looms, the dye room, and the outdoor dye garden. Then we'll finish up in the huge woodshop, with its giant bandsaw, industrial size sanders and woodturning lathes, classic handtools, and large boatbuilding area. As we go, I'll share the story of how BARN came to be, and what it means to the Island and the region.
A long time community activist on Bainbridge Island, I was part of the team that created BARN. I know the story behind its creation, and I know all of the people and resources that make BARN such an amazing place. I manage all of BARN's social media, so I'm constantly sharing stories about the people and programs at BARN. I can set up a custom maker experience for guests depending on their interests, or just take them on a 1 hour tour of this unique facility. I've lived on Bainbridge Island for almost 30 years, and can weave in information about the flourishing artisan community on the Island.
I can help guests find transportation from the lodging or the ferry terminal to BARN.
The venue is BARN, the Bainbridge Artisan Resource Network, a makerspace and learning place. It is relatively new (opened 2017), is a little off the beaten path, and is not something that most visitors would find on their own. The 11 artisan studios are only open to the public for tours on Sundays between 1 and 3. So I would be giving access to an experience that visitors otherwise might miss.
