Workshops at Stanley-Whitman
See below for upcoming workshops.
Join us for programs such as our Research Sharing Roundtable, Gravestone Cleaning Workshops, and more.
Roll up your sleeves, get dirty and learn all about Connecticut's colonial graveyards with Ruth Shapleigh-Brown of the CT Gravestone Network!
Gravestone cleaning workshops run from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM and start with an orientation on cemetery preservation, maintenance of historic gravestones, an overview of Connecticut’s historic burying grounds and cemeteries, and symbolism and carver identification. A demonstration will highlight basic care of gravestones, including low-tech conservation do’s and don’ts, before splitting into smaller groups for a demonstration of hands-on-basic techniques. Materials will be provided. Parking is available at the Barney Library which is a short distance away from the Memento Mori Cemetery.
