 Rachel Miller and Timothy Miller will discuss the ironwork restoration of one of New York City’s most beloved, and historically significant social services agencies, Henry Street Settlement. This talk will explore the processes involved in restoring historic ironwork on three Federal style buildings. The project was a rare opportunity to explore how pre-Civil War ironwork was constructed. They will also describe how the restoration process incorporated many traditional metalworking techniques such as; forging genuine wrought iron, tool and die making and replicating cast iron elements. They will also touch upon some of the partners that made the project possible including: Li/Saltzman Architects, Henry St. Settlement, The New York Landmarks Conservancy, and NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission.   (Please note this lecture has been rescheduled from Thursday September 17th to Tuesday, October 13th.) Advance registration is required to receive the link to the webinar platform, Please click here to register.
