Take your DIY to the next level with Vintage Green
This February, Indiana Landmarks launches Vintage Green – an 18-month series of lectures and hands-on workshops demonstrating best practices in sustainable renovation and restoration. Based at a historic Queen Anne home rescued from foreclosure in South Bend, Vintage Green workshops will demonstrate that sustainability and historic preservation can work hand-in-hand. Participants will learn and then practice a wide variety of renovation skills.
Not so handy, but still want to learn? Vintage Green also includes hour-long lectures the first Wednesday of each month.
March sessions highlight identifying hazardous materials during renovation – including lead paint, asbestos, and mold – and show how to develop a twenty-first-century renovation plan that is sympathetic to your home’s historic character.
