Have you ever struggled to open or close your house’s wooden windows? Do you love how your old windows look but aren’t sure how to get them working properly? Do you have a cracked pane, peeling paint, or glazing falling off? Want to keep your old windows and learn how to make them last another 100 years while remaining energy-efficient? Then this course is for you! This beginner workshop is designed for those with little to no experience with wooden window repair and an interest in learning more.
Over two days, you’ll learn how to better appreciate, assess, and repair wooden windows under the guidance of a skilled instructor. Participants will gain an understanding of how windows have been constructed in Rhode Island, common problems such windows face, and what tools, products, and techniques can be used to repair them to last another century.
Included in the cost of the workshop are three monthly check-ins with the instructor to follow up on any questions and practical challenges that might arise once you start your own window projects.
Attire: Wear closed-toed shoes and clothes you’re comfortable getting dirty. Tools will be provided.
Register in advance.
