The Preservation Trades Network is excited to welcome you to the 25th IPTW! This September, we invite you to attend this three-day event, hosted by the Historic Preservation Training Center (HPTC) in Frederick, Maryland, at their new location - The Hargett Farm.
Converging on the Farm will be experts in the traditional building trades. Hands-on demonstrations and workshops include the topics of carpentry and timber framing, stone and brick masonry, plaster, roofing and so much more. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with professionals throughout each day and learn from the masters.
