Wood Window Workshop

May 18 @ 9:00 am - May 19 @ 4:00 pm


The Moore-Lindsay House is excited to be hosting the City of Norman Oklahoma’s Wood Window Workshop this spring!​

​Original wood windows are the soul of historic structures and are essential for retaining the character of a historic home. Join the experienced restoration team from Old Home Rescue at the Moore-Lindsay House on May 18 & 19, 9am-4pm, to gain the skills required to repair, restore, and maintain historic wood windows.

This 2-day workshop includes:

  • Instruction on how to maintain and restore historic wood windows.
  • Hands-on practice of repair skills like unsticking windows, cutting glass, putty glazing, epoxy paint removal, painting wood windows, weatherstripping, and hardware adjustments.
  • Lessons on restoration safety, window maintenance, and window efficiency.


What to expect:

  • Breakfast pastries and coffee, a light lunch, and bottled water will be provided on both days, at no extra cost.
  • This workshop will take place outdoors to the greatest extent possible, and participants should wear weather-appropriate, work-safe clothing and closed-toe shoes.
  • Participants must bring their own N95 mask, work gloves, and safety glasses.
  • ​In the case of severe weather, the workshop may be rescheduled to June 1 & 2.


This workshop is partially funded through a CLG Grant from the State Historic Preservation Office and the National Park Service.

Pre-Registration is required and attendance is limited to the first 15 registrants. Please complete the registration form here. Registration will close at 11:59pm on Thursday, May 16.
