Workshop

Description

Limit: 12 students

Fee: $425.00

Participants are guided through the difficult process of recognizing architectural changes made during various periods in the lifespan of a building. They learn to identify the specific elements relevant to the dating process. This includes the evolution of molding styles, hardware, window & door treatments, fireplaces, timber-framing methods; also tell-tale signs such as saw, hand plane & planer marks. Students gain a good sense of the amount of detective work required to date a pre-1875 structure & will spend the last day of the class investigating actual structures in the vicinity.
