Seeking Proposals for Preservation Trades Demonstrations
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Division of Architecture and Preservation, Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, Preservation Trades Network

The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission is partnering with Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology, the Preservation Trades Network, Inc. and other organizations to bring one of the largest gatherings of preservation and traditional trades people and enthusiasts in the world to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA.

The 15th annual International Preservation Trades Workshop (IPTW) will be held August 2-6, 2011 on the campus of Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology, 750 E. King Street in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. IPTW 2011 will bring together hundreds of the best preservation and traditional trades crafts people, as well as preservation architects, preservation consultants, building trades contractors and others from the US, Canada, Europe and beyond, who are interested in learning more about preservation and traditional trades techniques, tools, materials and practices. For those who work in the preservation and traditional building trades, this is a gathering of their 'tribe.' For others, it offers a unique opportunity to see some of the finest crafts people at work and learn more about how historic building preservation is accomplished in construction.

We are currently seeking proposals from potential demonstrators and presenters.  If you practice a traditional or preservation trade that you would like to demonstrate that will highlight particular techniques, materials, tools and skills related to the preservation or restoration of historic structures we would like to hear from you.  Visit the web site at http://www.iptw.org/demonstrator.htm  to access the demonstrator guidelines and proposal form.

More than 50 presentations and in-depth hands-on demonstrations will showcase the talents of some of the world's best preservation and traditional crafts people. There will also be two-day in-depth pre-conference workshops in Preservation and Repair of Porches and Painting Historic Buildings, a one-day Lead Safety for Renovation, Repair and Painting EPA certification course and an extended course in timber framing. Special pre-conference tours will include a trip to the Mercer Museum, Fonthill and the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works. Another tour will include a demonstration of a water powered vertical saw mill at Daniel Boone Homestead, a behind the scene tour of the Ball and Ball Hardware workshops and a tour of the Wharton Escherick home and studio. Conference and workshop sessions are eligible for American Institute of Architects continuing education units.

Opportunities currently exist for event sponsorships, product and service exhibitors, non-profit and educational exhibitors and student scholarships.

Visit the web site www.iptw.org for more information and registration. Or email info@ptn.org with your questions.
