Since 1997, Historic Seattle has been the umbrella organization for a group of members passionate about the Arts and Crafts movement—its historical roots in Great Britain and Europe, its ideology and leading advocates and practitioners, and the artists and craftspeople, both hobbyists and professionals, who produced objects of beauty and utility. The Arts and Crafts Guild was the impetus for our popular annual Bungalow Fair and Arts and Crafts lecture series (1998-2011).
Two of the founding members of Historic Seattle’s Arts and Crafts Guild will open their Kirkland home in the spring to show off a remarkable, museum-quality collection of furniture by leading American companies such as Gustav Stickley and Charles Limbert, along with ceramics, metalwork and lighting fixtures, tile, leather, and block prints that illuminate the rich legacy of American crafts and the talents of contemporary craftspeople following in their footsteps. This contemporary Craftsman home has been modified considerably with salvaged stained glass, art tile, and lighting to provide an appropriate backdrop for this collection. collection.
Please note: the venue address will be sent to registrants prior to the tour.
