Member Exclusive! 

Beautiful northern California will be the site of our exclusive Farms Afield: Bay Area Adventure, Tuesday to Friday, July 10-13! Meet us in Berkeley, CA for a three-night stay at the extraordinary  5-star Claremont Hotel (below) and join other Arts and Crafts enthusiasts for a multifaceted exploration of the rich and abundant art, craft, and architectural traditions of this remarkable region.



    Stay at the luxury Claremont Hotel.
    The “White Castle on the Hill” opened
     in 1915, and is today a grand resort
     with restaurants, bars,
a spa and
     stunning views of San Francisco Bay.



Tour the National Historic Landmark Swedenborgian Church (above right), one of California’s earliest Arts and Crafts buildings and one of the most important Arts and Crafts structures in America. Experience many of the church’s original furnishings, including its iconic chairs, which are still in use today.

First Church

Explore the life and work of architect Bernard Maybeck with tours of two private Maybeck homes, a special tour of his First Church of Christ, Scientist (a National Historic Landmark, at right), a meal at the Faculty Club on the UC Berkeley campus, and a visit to the Palace of Fine Arts.

Visit three exquisite and distinct California Arts and Crafts private homes, each with incomparable collections, and each approached, inside and out, with extraordinary focus on every detail.

Discover the rich history of the Hillside Club. This still active social club was founded in the late 19th century to promote good design practices in the Berkeley hills.

Enjoy dinner at Julia’s, at the beautiful and historic Berkeley City Club hotel, one of the most significant designs of architect Julia Morgan.

Visit the gallery of California Historical Design and the Dirk van Erp Workshop Museum.
