The day begins with a brief introduction to cultural heritage and historic building preservation. Throughout the day knowledgeable and skilled tradespeople will present brief demonstrations of their trades, including woodwork repairs, window sash glazing, and woodcarving.
Anyone with an interest in older and historic buildings is invited to attend, including homeowners, historic building managers, and professionals like architects and government agency staff. Tradespeople who work on these buildings are invited to attend and connect with building owners. Also invited are tradespeople and contractors who are interested in moving into the preservation trades and learning to work on older and historic buildings.
The event is free, but registration is required.
