Join us for Donuts & DIY on Saturday, August 24, 2019! This round we'll be focusing on reglazing original wood windows (and we'll have glazed donuts - hence glazing squared!).
For this workshop, glazing refers to the putty that holds pieces of glass in the sash. We'll cover tools, products, and methods for getting that perfect glazing bead to make your historic windows look brand new!
This FREE workshop is best for those that have a general understanding of wood window components and tools and are seeking a more detailed crash course on reglazing, as well as some hands-on practice time. Skill level for this course is moderate.
This event is outdoors and hands-on. You bring the questions, we’ll bring the donuts (and coffee)!
Event Time: Saturday, August 24, 2019, from 9:30am - 11:30am
Event Address: 422 Pereida Street (Beethoven Maennerchor)
Parking: Free parking will be located in the lot adjacent to the garden, around the mansion. Please DO NOT park in the lot at the corner of Pereida and Alamo as that belongs to Liberty Bar.

Join the Office of Historic Preservation (OHP), preservation professionals, and your neighbors at the 11th annual Historic Homeowner Fair to learn how to maintain your home! The Historic Homeowner Fair is a free event hosted by OHP that brings together owners of aging and historic homes with local professionals, services, and solutions and educates homeowners about caring for and maintaining their properties. HHF boasts a carefully curated Exhibit Hall located in the Pearl Stable, designed to provide the most relevant resources for homeowners such as design services, construction professionals, and purveyors of goods such as tile, metal fixtures, paint, and salvaged materials. Homeowners have the opportunity to learn hands-on skills at our workshops and learning sessions, held throughout the Fair. From restoring wood windows to retrofitting homes for energy efficiency, the topics of our educational programs are designed to meet the needs of the DIY renovator. There will also be door prizes, opportunities to speak with OHP about your historic home, and a keynote speaker.
