Register for our window glazing workshop

How to Putty a Window – October 16th

Fifty years ago, almost every painter, carpenter, and homeowner knew how to putty (glaze) a window. Today this relatively simple task is usually done by painters but is often neglected as more and more windows are replaced.

Led by noted window specialist and author of The Window Sash Bible, Steve Jordan, this short workshop will introduce the materials and tools needed to glaze a window, including traditional oil-based and water-based materials as-well-as quick-drying shop-specific products. We will demonstrate how to remove old putty, spot glaze, and replace broken panes of glass. Safe measures for working with lead paint and putty will be part of the tutorial.

Saturday, October 16th | 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM | Stone-Tolan Historic Site, 2370 East Avenue | Cost: $30


New classes from the YUPs!

The YUPs have a few brand new classes coming up this fall and winter. Classes are held through the Rochester Brainery and registration is available on the Brainery’s website (follow the link below).

11/1 – Architecture in Film and Media: Spooky Edition

The Shining, Psycho, The Munsters, The Addams Family, Amityville Horror, Halloween, Hocus Pocus … Historic architecture is used throughout film and media to convey a sense of mystery and to elicit suspense and fear. This creates an unconscious association in the audience, adding a cloak of misunderstanding around certain architectural styles. How many of us have looked at a Second Empire-style house or a farmhouse with peeling paint and thought, “Oh, that house is creepy and haunted”? In this class, we’ll discuss how architecture has been used throughout film’s history to create that sense of spookiness. We’ll then look at examples of these same styles from around our region and unpack the architectural details that make certain styles perfect for scary movies.

11/9, 12/6, 1/10 – Old House Interior Design: A 3-Part Series

When it comes to designing for the interior spaces of our home, it’s hard to define an authentic style we truly love, particularly for older homes. But it doesn’t have to be! Whether you own an old house or would like to discover your interior design style, this class will teach you how to honor the history and embrace the character of houses from the 1830s through the 1960s. Find which characteristics in common house styles suit your personal aesthetics and learn solutions to common old house pitfalls (like small kitchens). We’ll explore products, materials and sensitive design solutions that enhance your home’s original features – without sacrificing your unique style.
