Free Summer Antique Restoration Class!

Have you ever tried to restore your great grandmother's old dresser only to end up disappointed? Ever been perplexed at the infinite choices in the finishing aisle at your local hardware store? Ever wished someone could just explain the "right" way to preserve antique furniture? Then we have the event for you...

Furniture Restorer, Joshua A. Klein of Brooklin, Maine will be teaching a summer class at the Blue Hill Library on June 18th, 2011. The title of the class is "Restoring Your Heirlooms: Fundamental Considerations for Furniture Restoration". We will be covering topics such as Terminology, Value Considerations, Methodology, and much more! The class begins at 10 am and goes until 12 am. All are heartily invited to bring their questions, notebooks for note-taking, and even small pieces of furniture for evaluation (time permitting)! We look forward to seeing you there!


  1. This sounds like such a great Idea. I am now considering doing a class like this here in England this summer.

  2. Great idea! I have the mp3s from the event posted here > Free lectures. Maybe it could help in your preparation. Be well.

  3. Thanks for the link to the mp3s, will definitely check them out later today
