The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission is a lead partner organization sponsoring the 15th annual International Preservation Trades Workshop (IPTW 2011) which will be held on the campus of Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology in Lancaster, PA, August 2-6, 2011. This is only the second time this event has been held in Pennsylvania. Each year the IPTW, sponsored by the Preservation Trades Network (PTN), draws together hundreds of the best preservation trades practitioners, and others interested in the preservation and traditional trades, showcasing their work through trade skills demonstrations, exhibits and lectures. Tradespeople from the US and abroad will share the techniques, tools, materials and technologies of crafts and trades ranging from masonry restoration, slate, wood shingle and metal roong, decorative painting, preservation carpentry, timber framing, and blacksmithing, to plaster restoration, stained glass repair and much more.
