Providence Preservation Society Building Works Shop Night

If you’ve ever started a home project and wished you had an expert looking over your shoulder, then Shop Nights are for you. Whether you’re a total beginner or a seasoned DIYer, drop by our Building Works workshop every other Thursday night to ask questions, get hands-on advice, tinker, and connect.
