10/28/16 Belfry Starts and Ends Their Summer Season With Two Great GHHN Events.

Belfry Historic Consultants are great fans of The Greater Hudson Heritage Network, one of the predominant historic conservation resources in New York State.  Therefore, we were thrilled to be a part of two of their events this year.  At the end of June, Belfry was proud to host the GHHN ‘Behind the Scenes Networking Event’ at our Beacon, N.Y. showroom.   We got a chance to talk about some of the exciting past and present restoration projects that we have been involved with, and to share some of our approach and methodology in recreating historic wallcoverings, fabrics, and trims.  It was a wonderful opportunity to talk about the philosophy that drives our commitment to Historic accuracy with some of the top professionals in the greater Hudson area and beyond. 

To wrap up the Summer and welcome in the Fall season, Belfry was pleased to take part in another fine GHHN event: the 2016 Annual Conference at Locust Grove Estate in Poughkeepsie, New York.  While the conference hosted several  talks and workshops on sensory immersion as an approach to accessing History, Belfry invited conference attendees to engage in the visual and tactile discovery of perfect period reproductions including:  printed gaufrage mohair, silk damasks, vibrantly colored horsehair fabric, embossed block printed wallpapers, and hand-crafted passementerie. We had an absolutely fantastic time.  What a great way to start and end our Summer season!!
