Participants will be guided through reference materials prepared by David Ellison and Stephen Trudic, owner of Cleveland area millshop, Mouldings One. These materials consolidate and synthesize information from a variety of sources on the subject of moldings and their usage, and illustrate shapes and proportions specific to different architectural styles.
