Preserve Arkansas Plans Hot Springs Window Workshop

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Thursday, June 22, 2017

LITTLE ROCK—Preserve Arkansas will host a window weatherization and repair workshop on Saturday, September 16, 2017, at the John Lee Webb House at 403 Pleasant Street in Hot Springs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Respected preservationist Bob Yapp of Hannibal, Missouri-based Preservation Resources, Inc., will teach participants how to repair a double-hung, wood window unit from beginning to end. This intensive, learn-by-doing course includes instruction on safe paint removal, glazing putty repair, weather-stripping, sash reinstallation, and re-roping sash weights. The workshop also teaches students about historic window construction methods and the advantages of reusing historic windows.

The cost of the workshop is $25 for Preserve Arkansas members and $30 for non-members. A boxed lunch is included with your registration fee. Space is limited, so register today at https://preservearkansas.org/get-involved/wood-window-restoration-workshop/.

Work clothes and closed-toe shoes are required. Participants must agree to remain on-site for the duration of the workshop. Safety equipment will be provided. Eight hours of HSW continuing education credit will be available through the American Institute of Architects.
