The ca. 1840 Greek Revival Bartow mansion features interior window shutters—sadly in need of repair—that help protect from summer's sun and winter's chill.

Participants will learn how to safely remove lead paint, prepare and paint wood surfaces, make repairs, and more under the guidance of preservation/restoration specialists.

This workshop is offered in partnership with Historic House Trust of NYC and Preservation Volunteers.

Lunch provided with tours of the mansion and speakers. Participants must be 18 or over.
