Old home ownership is not for the faint of heart (trust us, we know!), but we're here to help!
We've teamed up with our friends at History Nebraska and Preserve Omaha to bring you a series designed to demystify maintaining and preserving your old home or building. Join us for This Old Castle as we learn alongside us from the best experts in town.
Join us February 7th for a hands-on workshop focusing on the art of laying tile. We're thrilled to welcome back our friends John Brennan and Jon Krainak of Preserve Omaha to lead us through the basics of tiling. All registrants will receive a set of equipment that we will use to lay our own tile demo. Attendees will take their tools and sample tile sets home with them.
Doors open at 5:30pm and the program begins at 6pm. We'll have our little bar set up if you choose to have a drink.
This workshop has a limited capacity and registration is required.
