From the comfort of your workshop/home/office please join us for a day long exploration and sharing of the art of Window Restoration.
We are hoping to feature a variety of input - some pre-recorded, some live, some discussion sessions (always a hallmark of WPA gatherings!)
Some proposed sessions:
Weather strip - how it's made! See the machines in action.
Repairs - techniques and best practices. Please submit good photos and/or video of how you tackle rotted corners, lock bites, wonky jambs.
Business issues - hiring and firing? training and safety? accounting and measuring success? Let us know what you want to learn more about or if you are a subject expert.
Shop tours - again, great opportunity to clean your shop and record a virtual shop tour.
Virtual cocktail hour hosted by the master of the hour - David Hoggard of Double Hung Window Restoration in Greensboro, NC. If you remember the wonderful hospitality of 2018 you'll want to join in for more of the fun.
We are working out the details of registration but are hoping that because this is all online you can block out the day, put down the glazing putty, and come for some good info on our favorite subject - saving original windows. We encourage you to invite your colleagues, your friends who maybe interested in restoring windows as a business, etc. Preservation professionals we want you too!
