How drafty is the barn?

I would look into propane radiant heaters. These will heat you and objects but not heat the air. Much nicer to handle warm tools in the cold than cold tools in warmish air. Make sure there is sufficient make up air so you don’t get a carbon monoxide or dioxide buildup. And also make sure there is something to put out a fire encase something gets out of hand. When in doubt buy a CO detector

If electric is cheap, electric space heaters and put up a tent inside to keep the warmed air from escaping to easily.

If you have to choose insulation or no drafts, go for eliminating drafts first. Insulation doesn’t do much if there is air movement.
