Professional Historical Colours Analysis Workshop Vancouver Heritage Foundation Feb 29, 2020 : 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

Join heritage consultant Donald Luxton to learn how to identify the original colour scheme of a house or building and develop appropriate heritage colour schemes. During the day, attendees will have the opportunity to visit two Strathcona houses for hands-on paint-sampling demonstrations. The workshop will cover the history of exterior colour in Vancouver, typical colour schemes, how to take and analyze paint samples, and how colour can enhance modern-day restorations. This full-day course is geared towards heritage professionals (architects, consultants and designers). On completion of this course, attendees will be awarded a certificate of completion.
