315) Stencil Workshop at Squire's Tavern

315)   Stencil Workshop at Squire's Tavern - May 15, 2007
                 Historical Society volunteer Linne Landgraf hosted a stencil workshop at the Squire's Tavern.  A group of seven people organized by the Salmon Brook Historical Society visited the Tavern to learn more about the wall stencils.  In 2004 Linne and other volunteers completed wall stenciling in the front parlor of the Tavern.  The stencil work was based on original stencils found in what is now the liquor keep.  Stencil work is now nearing completion in the ball room of the Tavern (see log entry #306 below).  During the stencil workshop on Tuesday, Linne provided insights on how the original wall stenciling were discovered, how layers of paint were removed that had covered the stencils, and the research that had been done to recreate the wall stencil patterns used in the restored rooms.  Linne discussed the input we received from historic building consultant John Curtis, paint expert Brian Powell and stencil consultant Mary Lou Davis.
