Event highlight: Calling all (wanna-be) carpenters

It’s not too late to take advantage of the Preservation Resource Center’s inaugural series of Advanced Renovation Workshops. Taught by local professionals, these more in-depth sessions teach you how to tackle your own renovation.

The two remaining workshops will take place from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 18, and Wednesday, Jan. 25, at the PRC at 923 Tchoupitoulas Street. Interested participants can register for both sessions for $40 (discounted from $65 for the complete series).

Topics for the remaining workshops include project management skills, sequencing, building systems, local resources, and incorporating salvaged materials. To register, call Averil at 504.581.7032.
