8 – 8:30 Tim Eaton Examines Hill-Stead’s Painted Wood Grain Inside the Museum
Several rooms at Hill-Stead were decorated with the fashionable wall treatment of wood grain painting — in public rooms (such as the Dining Room shown above) and behind-the-scenes service areas.
Artisan Tim Eaton will discuss painted wood grain finishes and lead a demonstration showcasing current tools and techniques. The program will include a look at Hill-Stead’s original wood grained spaces.
Enjoy wine, beer, and hors d’oeuvres at a reception in Hill-Stead’s Makeshift Theater before the program.
