Masonry Workshops

Henry Frerk Sons offers a range of masonry workshops throughout the fall and winter, and we focus on historic restoration. Most of our classes are offered on Wednesday mornings, and most are free. Our classes are suitable for professionals and building owners alike, and we offer plenty of opportunities for hands-on practice so you can try out the materials and techniques that we cover.


Can't make our classes? We also do evening presentations several times a year for the Historic Chicago Bungalow Association, so check their seminar schedule to see if there's an upcoming event that works with your schedule!





Henry Frerk Sons is pleased to announce our upcoming 2017-2018 Masonry Workshop Schedule. Most of our classes are free, but space is limited so register early to secure your spot. All classes take place at our Chicago workshop, which is located at 3210 N. Troy St., directly north of our main facility at 3135 W. Belmont.
