EDUCATION

We are building a community of homeowners, craftspeople, DIYers, Realtors, and anyone who cares about (or cares for) old buildings. Hands-on workshops and classes connect you to the tools, skills, and experiences you need to take good care of the places you love.

Rethos encourages, but does not require, face masks during general
in-person classes. This is subject to change based on the comfort and needs of our class hosts, who generously donate their space to us.
