DIY Solar Window Screens

  • the Green Project 2831 Marais St. New Orleans United States (map)

Are your old screens falling apart? Do you have tears and holes in your window screens? Looking to save on your energy bills? All of the above?

In this classroom based workshop, we will go over everything you need to know to get accurate measurements, build sturdy and long lasting screen frames, attach tight screens that don't flap in the wind, and trim out and seal custom solar window screens.  We will also talk about the hardware that you will need, how to hang your new screens, and basic ladder safety.

This is an educational workshop where you’ll learn how to make a screen. Use MakerSpace open hours on Saturdays from 1pm-4pm to build your screens!

This workshop is $5 at the door and FREE for TGP Members!
