Pasadena Heritage Presents: Craftsman Weekend


October 17-19, 2014

Pasadena Heritage will present its 23rd Annual Craftsman Weekend on October 17-19, 2014. Craftsman Weekend is the largest and most comprehensive salute to the Arts & Crafts Movement in the Western United States. The Weekend’s offerings will include a tour of significant Craftsman-era houses, a variety of bus and walking tours, an Exposition Show & Sale of over 70 exhibitors featuring antique and contemporary furniture and decorative arts, a silent auction, presentations and exclusive evening receptions at historic sites.

The Craftsman Movement (also known as the American Arts & Crafts Movement) emerged in the early 20th century in the U.S. as an outgrowth of the English Arts and Crafts Movement. Its hallmark is a philosophy of honest, simple design expressed in hand-made creations by skilled craftsmen. While the Movement flowered through the U.S., Pasadena became a particularly strong center for Craftsman design including architecture, art, and ceramics. International recognition of Craftsman-era expression in Pasadena has been accorded to the work of architects Charles and Henry Greene, tile maker Ernest Batchelder, artists Elmer and Marion Wachtel, and writer/photographer Helen Lukens Gaut, among others.

Tickets on sale Wednesday, August 13th. For further information, schedules, ticket prices, and to purchase tickets, please visit us online at or contact Pasadena Heritage, 651 South St. John Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91105, call 626.441.6333.
