Traditional + Historic House Paints Workshop

February 21, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - February 22, 2020 @ 9:30 pm


Join us for HVHP Restoration Training Program’s first Winter/Spring 2020 workshop.

The Traditional + Historic House Paints Workshop will be held Friday, February 21st + Saturday, February 22nd.

This workshop demystifies traditional paint by exploring its benefits over synthetic coatings and offering hands-on direction for using natural, oil-based paints for architectural restoration and preservation. Homeowners and professionals alike are welcome as we delve into this enthralling topic with skilled scholars and experts: Tina Reichenbach of Richbrook Conservation, Natalie Yon-Eriksson of Earth+Flax, and preservation paint specialist Erika Sanchez Goodwillie.

Participants will learn about the history paint making, traditional linseed oil paints and how to use them, surface prep, methods of paint removal, exterior and interior applications, painting and brush skills, clean-up, and maintenance.

Tina Reichenbach is an independent architectural conservator with 20 years of experience in architectural conditions assessments, testing, and development of repair methods and materials for landmark structures nationwide. Her specialized interest is in historic paint research and analysis as she helps clients to understand the historic decorative appearance of painted surfaces and options for contemporary reproduction.

Since completing her first Swedish Windowcraft restoration workshop 15 years ago, Natalie Yon-Eriksson has built her experience in traditional materials with Scandinavian craftsmen and manufacturers. Her search for sustainable materials for the architectural industry led to the creation of Earth+Flax, which offers traditional linseed-oil based products for the American market. Earth+Flax has increased the availability of these materials and created a community around a shared knowledge base.

Erika Sanchez Goodwillie is a freelance carpenter and technician on architectural conservation projects, and specializes in the replication and application of handmade architectural paints for historic interiors in museums and landmark structures. She trained with Christopher Ohrstrom and Jack Fisher, first for a period room at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and has worked closely with fellow historic interior finish expert Christopher Mills. She holds a certificate in Preservation Carpentry from North Bennet Street School.

The cost for two full, 7-hour days, including all materials, tools, and lunch, is $380. By offering this subsidized, reduced-rate workshop, Hudson Valley House Parts brings experts to share the skills and knowledge base needed to restore our historic Newburgh structures and beyond.

To ensure an exceptional learning experience, the class size is limited. However, a minimum of 6 participants is required to hold the workshop.
