Farms Afield: Boston
Wednesday - Saturday, July 27 - 30, 2016
For our 2016 Farms Afield trip, we’re meeting in Boston, “home base” of the early Arts and Crafts movement in America, a city whose artisans, designers, architects, writers, and teachers helped shape and disperse the movement’s ideals and aesthetics across the nation.
We’ll take in Boston’s abundant sites while leaving time for relaxation and individual exploration. Not only is this a chance to see this historic city from a specially-planned Arts-and-Crafts perspective, you’ll see it among friends who will share your enthusiasm for all the details.
• Stay at The Boxer Hotel, a boutique hotel in Boston’s historic Flatiron Building.
• Enjoy an exclusive cocktail party in the home of a Stickley descendent and Arts and Crafts collector.
• Take a custom Arts and Crafts-focused walking tour of Beacon Hill and the North End.
• Take a private curator’s tour of the MFA, Boston’s Arts and Crafts collection.
• Enjoy dinner and a tour at Stonehurst, H. H. Richardson’s domestic masterpiece.
