The Delaware County Historical Society is presenting the first in a series of hands-on workshops pertaining to historic building preservation. Presented by Delaware County Historical Society volunteer Devon Hardwick, this workshop will cover what to look for when addressing historic wooden windows, methods of stabilization, glass cutting, glazing, and much more.
This is a hands-on workshop, so attendees will need to bring a pair of gloves and a 2-inch putty knife. For attendees who don’t have a putty knife, there will be ones provided, as well as all other tools.
This workshop will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 13, at the Barn at Stratford in Delaware. Seating is limited, and there is a cost involved. Interested individuals can register until April 11 on Eventbrite or at www.DelawareOhioHistory.org.
