The community is invited to view student projects and demonstrations by talented BPR students who are learning the skills of the traditional building trades to preserve, maintain, and restore historic buildings. Examples of ornamental plaster, wood parquetry, stained glass, blacksmithing, hand-made ceramic tile and scagliola all made by students in the program will be displayed.


Additionally, the students will also be offering some of their hand-made wares via a Chinese auction during the event. You must be present to win. All of the proceeds from the Chinese auction will benefit the BPR Student Association for conferences and field trips.
