Preservation Rendezvous

Presented by the Preservation Trades Network & Timber Framers Guild

In partnership with the Kentucky Heritage Council, the Frankfort/Franklin County Tourist Commission and the City of Frankfort

June 28 – July 4, 2009 - Frankfort, KY

This summer an event will take place in Frankfort, the State Capitol, which will be something brand new for Preservation Trades Network (PTN) members in more ways than one.  First, it will be an outdoor event with on-site camping that will be very low cost and meant to be something to bring the whole family to.  Second, we will be partnering with the Timber Framers Guild (TFG) to put on the event so PTN members and TFG members will have a chance to get to know one another while enjoying the festivities. Our sponsors for this event are the Kentucky Heritage Council, the Frankfort/Franklin County Tourist Commission and the City of Frankfort. Cove Spring Park log meat house.

The week will start out with two workshops from June 28 through July 1:

The Timber Frame Picnic Shelter Workshop, which will include laying out and cutting a white oak picnic shelter. Students who enroll in the timber frame workshop will have the opportunity to learn square rule layout, cutting square rule joinery and using hand and power tools.  The picnic shelter workshop will take place at the River View Park but instructors and students of both workshops will be able to camp and eat right at Cove Spring Park.

The Log Meat House Workshop will involve restoration of the first period log meat house at Cove Spring Park, where the camping and camp kitchen will be. Attendees who enroll in the log meat house workshop will have an opportunity to learn how to document and draw a log structure, as well as how to properly deconstruct, assess and store the components.  The restoration will be completed during IPTW 2010 which will also take place in Frankfort. 

Cost for each workshop: $225

River View Park picnic shelter. The workshops Preservation Rendezvous will begin on July 2 and run through July 4. The first day of the rendezvous, attendees will be invited to join in on the raising of the picnic shelter, and the last day the festivities will end with a Frankfort fabulous fireworks display. Saturday, July 4 will be “Welcome Frankfort Day” and the public is invited to come to River View Park and see all of the hands-on activities and demonstrations as well as watch the finals of the ax throwing competition. So mark your calendars now and plan on coming and joining in the educational and fun activities!
