Eventbrite - Pasadena Heritage 25th Anniversary Craftsman Weekend


Craftsman Weekend 2016

In its 25th year, Pasadena Heritage will present the Annual Craftsman Weekend on November 11-13, 2016. The Weekend will mark a quarter century of honoring the Craftsman movement, featuring house tours of notable Craftsman properties, along with bus and walking tours of the surrounding neighborhoods. Other events scheduled include a Show and Sale with over 50 exhibitors of antique and contemporary furniture and decorative arts, a silent auction, workshops and presentations. In recognition of its 25th year hosting the event, Pasadena Heritage will be offering exclusive receptions at historic locations throughout the weekend.


The Craftsman Movement

The City of Pasadena is home to some of the most notable examples of the Craftsman Movement on the West Coast. Also known as the American Arts and Crafts Movement, the architectural style emerged in the early 1900’s and is noted for its emphasis of ceramics, art, and other features developed by skilled craftsmen. Tracing its roots to England, Craftsmen design has nevertheless developed a unique and internationally lauded aesthetic in Pasadena, with the work of architects Charles and Henry Greene, tile maker Ernest Batchelder, and writer/photographer Helen Lukens Gaut, among others.
