November

Building & Brews: Romantic Era:

,
201 Lipscomb Street, Fort Worth, TX
or Virtual
Join Hull Work's founder Brent Hull and fellow building craftsmen for shop talk, beers, snacks. This Building & Brews event will focus on the Romantic Era in architecture (1860-1880). America’s industrial revolution during this period changed the way craftsmen built houses. Balloon framing, new molding manufacturing and cut nails enabled builders to build in new ways. New Romantic architectural styles took hold in this period too: Italianate, Second Empire and Gothic Revival. These styles were more ornamental and challenging to build. During this lecture, we will discuss how craftsmen did it. We hope to see you there, you can register here.

Building & Brews: Arts & Crafts:

,
201 Lipscomb Street, Fort Worth, TX
or Virtual
Join Hull Work's founder Brent Hull and fellow building craftsmen for shop talk, beers, snacks. This Building & Brews event will focus on the Arts & Crafts Movement (1880-1920). This period was a backlash against the industrialization of England and America. It was a reform movement, a positive reevaluation of hand craftsmanship. Bungalow, Four Square, Spanish Colonial Revival; Storybook; California Ranch and Tudor Revival house styles all emerged during the Arts & Crafts movement, often referred to as "the golden age of craft," when carpenters and their hand tools were celebrated. What did craftsmen know during this period? How did they respond to the new popular demand for these house types? What materials and tools did they work with? What influence has the Arts & Crafts Movement had on building and architecture today? Learn all of these and more during Hull's lecture. We hope to see you there, you can register here.
