Private courtyard  •  507 Barracks Street
Led by Mike Russo of Mason Masters LLC

Learn from an expert how to take care of your historic bricks!

The new Quarterly Care Workshop series is designed to provide hands-on demonstrations and resources to property owners and caretakers about the nuts-and-bolts of architectural preservation. Maintenance is preservation – and proper maintenance will protect historic structures from untimely deterioration.

This first workshop will focus on bricks and mortar. Bricks and mortar are equally critical components of a building’s structural system. Teaching property owners how to best care for and maintain their bricks and mortar will protect and preserve not only the structure, but also the owner’s investment.

This workshop series is part of a multi-tiered education initiative that will teach people of all ages and backgrounds about the value of the French Quarter’s architecture and proper stewardship of their historic structures through compliance with the Vieux Carré Commission Design Guidelines. Our goal is to raise awareness of the French Quarter’s cultural, economic, and historical value, as well as to concretely educate people about the nuts-and-bolts of architectural preservation by way of demonstrations and resources to French Quarter stakeholders that directly yield value to the district’s distinctive character.

Space will be limited at many of the sites, so the workshops will be videotaped and available via our YouTube channel for future reference.
