Prepping for painting? Whether you're looking to  hire a contractor or considering the DIY route, join us for this  workshop all about exterior painting. Historic preservationist Mark Johnston will talk through common causes of paint failure and proper painting prep. He'll teach you how to choose the right kinds of paints and brushes for your project. Hosted at the stunning 1851  Wright-Prendergast in St. Paul's Irvine Park, this workshop uses a  real-life example to demonstrate best practices in exterior painting.

Even if you plan to hire a contractor, knowing the  ins and outs of the process can ensure you're better prepared to make the right choice. Join us!
