About the Event

REGISTER

This class, taught by Mark Johnston of Historic Design Consulting, introduces you to wood finishes commonly found in older homes. Mark will discuss the differences between varnish, stain, dyes, and waxes.  He'll describe how to identify these finishes in your home and will demonstrate best practices for application, cleaning, and repair. Come with your questions and curiosities about historic wood finishes! We'll supply all the tools and materials. 

This class is brought to you by the Education program at Rethos: Places Reimagined. Rethos is proud to offer a variety of classes to homeowners, students, realtors, and anyone who loves old buildings. The Rethos Education program is funded in part by the Arts & Cultural Legacy Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society.
