The Bainbridge Artisan Resource Network is hosting a Spring Sampler event that will offer the public an opportunity to be a maker for a day.

The event will feature an afternoon of creative hands-on activities in BARN’s 11 craft studios. Organizers said the family-friendly event is planned for 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, April 14 at the nonprofit artisan center.

Attendees will be able to make block prints in printmaking, create Orizomegami paper in book arts, bake hand pies in the kitchen, decorate a hand-turned wooden top in woodworking, and try their hand at weaving or spinning in fiber arts.

The metal fabrication studio will also demonstrate metal machining and plasma cutting.

The event is free, and open to all ages. No registration is required.

Parking will be available onsite, or shuttles are available from Ordway Elementary.

BARN is a nonprofit community center for craft and invention, with a mission is to support an open, intergenerational community of artisans and makers dedicated to learning, teaching, sharing, and inspiring each other with creativity, craftsmanship and community service.
