Historic Wood Window Restoration for Homeowners Workshop
Enjoy an overview of historic wood window terminology and evaluation. We’ll discuss and demonstrate window restoration best practices. Glass cutting and simple wood repairs will be demonstrated, and students can try their hand at window glazing. Avoiding common pitfalls and mistakes encountered in window restoration projects will round out the workshop, with a particular focus on safety. Tools, products, and materials often used for historic restoration will be presented, and resource information will be provided.
Kevin grew up around his father’s stained-glass business. He soldered his first small glass art pieces at age 8. Kevin enjoyed creating small projects using various techniques throughout his school career. After graduating from Michigan State University with a degree in Environmental Geosciences, he ran a field research station at a glacier in Alaska. After several years, Kevin returned home to run the family business. Over the past decade, he has been involved in many diverse projects throughout S.E. Michigan, including Ford Fair Lane, Extreme Makeover (Armada), Meadowbrook Hall, The Edsel & Eleanor Ford House, The Fox Theater, Old Mariner’s Church, and many other private homes and places of worship. Kevin has personally restored hundreds of leaded glass windows, wood and metal window frames, and historic light fixtures.
