The Art of the Craftsman Style: 27th Annual Homes Tour

Saturday, April 27
10am to 4pm
Early-Bird Tickets: $25/Members, $35/Non-Members
home base: Preservation Austin Office (Texas Society of Architects Building, 500 Chicon)

Join us for “The Art of the Craftsman Style,” our 27th Annual Homes Tour! This year’s event celebrates Craftsman style homes citywide in coordination with the Harry Ransom Center’s The Rise of Everyday Design: The Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain and America, on view February 9-July 14.

During the late 19th century Britain’s Arts and Crafts Movement emphasized hand-made domestic goods and honest design to combat the more dehumanizing effects of the Industrial Revolution. Here in America, magazines and pattern books diffused the movement’s principles into the wildly-popular Craftsman style, embracing its picturesque aesthetic and democratic spirit to produce quality housing (albeit with machine-made components) for middle and working-class families.

Our tour will explore the Arts and Crafts Movement’s impact here in Austin through seven stunning homes from this beloved architectural era. Their histories give a glimpse of Craftsman style living in the early 20th century. Creative updates and additions show their seamless adaptation to modern life today.
