Window painted shut? Sashes falling apart? Putty getting loose? Lorri Sipes, a member of the National Association of Window Restoration Specialists, is hosting a three-day workshop in Oberlin! Carpenters, contractors, students, and home owners are invited to attend and learn the basics for repairing wood double-hung windows. The workshop combines written hand-outs, skill demonstration, and hands-on repair. Each participant will be assigned to a two-person team to work on repairing one or two windows over the course of the workshop.

The program begins Friday evening (6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.) and continues during the day both Saturday and Sunday (9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.).

All skill levels welcome, although participants should be comfortable with hand tools and small power tools. A detailed agenda, instruction manual, and list of tools to bring will be provided to all attendees prior to the workshop. Workshop fee: $225; limited to 10 participants. Register online or call (440) 774-1700.
