A window glazing workshop led by Steve Jordan, noted window specialist and author of The Window Sash Bible.

Fifty years ago, almost every painter, carpenter, and homeowner knew how to putty (glaze) a window. Today this relatively simple task is usually done by painters but is often neglected as more and more windows are replaced.

This short workshop will introduce the materials and tools needed to glaze a window, including traditional oil-based and water-based materials as-well-as quick-drying shop-specific products. We will demonstrate how to remove old putty, spot glaze, and replace broken panes of glass. Safe measures for working with lead paint and putty will be part of the tutorial.
