There are still some slots open to attend this upcoming workshop in October.
Jonathan Appell is a nationally known gravestone conservator and this is the closest he will come to conducting a workshop in Ohio this year. So if you are seeking to attend a quality cemetery preservation workshop, please take a look at the information below. Thank you.
All tools and materials required will be provided.
The basic techniques taught the first day (FRIDAY 17 Oct. 9 AM - 4 PM) will also be taught on day two (SATURDAY 18 Oct 9 AM - 4 PM).
Those that attend both days will be taught some additional advanced procedures.
Jeannie from the DNR will give classroom instruction on Friday evening (time and location to be determined). This instruction along with the workshop will allow attendees to be certified to probe for grave markers. There will not be any charge for this class.
Materials and instructions will be provided onsite. Participants will learn how to identify different monument types, clean gravestones using appropriate materials, repair damaged monuments, and reset leaning or fallen headstones.
