    The Preservation Trades Network Presents the 22nd Annual International Preservation Trades Workshop

    October 26-28, 2018
    Historic Preservation Training Center
    Frederick, Maryland

    Join us once again as we return to Frederick and the National Park Service’s Historic Preservation Training Center for the 22nd International Preservation Trades Workshop.  It is shaping up to be a great workshop, with the usual variety of demonstrators.  As usual there will be the main dinner and auction to cap off the event.  We have shortened the Workshop to two days this year, to allow for a youth day on Thursday and a community day on Sunday.  The Misia Leonard Scholarship is available for Students wishing to attend, so apply early!  We are planning several workshops ahead of the main event, including gravestone preservation, masonry preservation and window restoration.  We are honored that HPTC has once again opened their doors to us, and brought us home, as it were.  This year honor the legacy of Chris Robinson, who encouraged us all to “Go Big or Go Home”.

    See you in Frederick!
