Presented through the college’s award-winning Historic
Preservation and Restoration Program, the Field School
offers attendees the two-fold opportunity of developing unique
historic preservation skills while soaking up the atmosphere of the
oldest American settlement west of the Rocky Mountains.
June 16 —19
Situated near the mouth of the majestic Columbia River and
just a few miles from where the Lewis and Clark Expedition
spent the winter of 1805-1806, Astoria is Oregon’s gateway to
the Pacific. The area is also rich in natural and scenic beauty.
Hundreds of Victorian homes dot the steep hillsides and a
revitalized downtown takes visitors back to an earlier era.
This four-day hands-on Field School introduces participants to the
basic concepts of historic preservation. Students will earn two college
credits and engage in the crafts of historic buildings, including
woodworking, blacksmithing, stained glass design and repair, and
repair and weatherization of historic windows. The planned schedule
of workshops and activities includes:
• Monday, June 16 — Introduction to historic preservation, understanding
and using woodworking tools, a trolley tour along Astoria’s waterfront, and a
walking tour of historic neighborhoods in Astoria.
• Tuesday, June 17 — Stained glass workshop. Students learn the causes
of deterioration and failure of stained glass windows and gain hands-on
experience in repair and restoration techniques. Plus an evening tour
of the Norman Yeon house and site, a northwest regional style house
located in the dunes of the Clatsop Plains.
Stained Glass Workshop
Blacksmithing Workshop
• Wednesday, June 18 — Blacksmithing workshop. Students practice
fundamental techniques of blacksmithing. Plus that evening, a tour of
historic sites along the Washington side of the Columbia River.
• Thursday, June 19 — Historic window repair, glass cutting, and
weatherization workshops and an evening boat tour on the Columbia
River along Astoria’s historic waterfront.
Participants will experience an engaging combination of hands-on
Field School activities with customized tours of local historic resources.
Workshops and tours will be conducted by experienced and highly-qualified
working artisans, historians and preservationists. Tuition, fees and supplies
for the Field School total $575. Space is limited so early registration is
