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: Places Reimagined requires all attendees to wear face masks and maintain social distancing for the duration of all in-person classes.
