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.

Building and Brews: Period Revival:

,
201 Lipscomb Street, Fort Worth, TX 76104
or Virtual
Join Hull Works' founder Brent Hull and fellow building craftsmen for shop talk, beers, snacks. This Building & Brews event will focus on Period Revival (1920-1940). At the end of WWI, two million American soldiers returned from Europe where they had seen original historic homes firsthand, including English Tudor and Colonial; French Chateau and Beaux Arts; Italian Renaissance and Spanish Revival. This inspired European period houses in America which became the prevailing style in the US for twenty years, also referred to as Eclectic Houses. During this lecture we will explore the building technology of the early 20th century and how it made building period houses possible.

Building and Brews: Modern & Art Deco:

,
201 Lipscomb Street, Fort Worth, TX 76104
or Virtual
Join Hull Works' founder Brent Hull and fellow building craftsmen for shop talk, beers, snacks. This Building & Brews event will focus on the Modern and Art Deco Movement (1900-1950). Studying this period requires looking at a broad era of design and building. Starting with Louis Sullivan in 1900, we will look at how design evolved and the influence of architects such as Mies Van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright and more. We will explore Art Deco architecture, an international style, and its influence on building. During this time, commercial construction really began to take shape and the modern city emerged. Join us to learn about this prolific period in design and construction history that set the world up for production building.
