Houston! Learn How to Rehab Your House With Bill Davenport and Andy Warhol!

by Glasstire December 21, 2017

On Wednesday, December 27, Bill Davenport (artist, Bill’s Junk owner, and former Glasstire editor) will give a public demonstration on the safe and proper demolition of a building — in this case, a classic bungalow in Independence Heights — as part of a series of Houston-area workshops. This specific workshop is titled Termite Atelier, which is the first is the “first in a series of workshops on building and renovating… .”

Termite Atelier is in turn part of a larger program called Artist, Get Equity!, “a project aimed at giving artists tools to own the spaces where they live and work. This project is supported by The Idea Fund, a re-granting program administered by DiverseWorks, Aurora Picture Show, and Project Row Houses and funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.”

The workshop starts at 11:30 a.m. with an informal talk and q&a on the project, followed by “an optional two hours of hands-on demolition under Bill’s supervision.”

Please note, the event listing also reads: “Workers should wear hard-soled shoes or work boots, long sleeves, and long pants. Expect to get dirty. Space is limited to 8 attendees, and 4 workers at a time. Call or text Bill to reserve a space at 832-443-6660.”

Again, the workshop is limited to eight people, by reservation, and takes place on Wednesday, December 27 from 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. For the FB event listing and more info, go here.
