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. You'll have the opportunity to practice these techniques during class at a historic home in the South Side Historic University Neighborhood. Come with your questions and curiosities about historic wood finishes! We'll supply all the tools and materials.
