This program is centered on excellence in every area of life and applying it to live one's life artfully. It is a holistic experience, and I came away with a depth of understanding that exceeded my expectations.

I highly recommend this well-planned program covering the history of the Roycroft artisan colony and its relationship with the British Arts and Crafts Movement. Started by writer, publisher, and philosopher Elbert Hubbard in 1895 with a rebirth in the 1970s and '80s. Several good craft demos, leaders who welcomed us into their Roycroft-built homes, plus the added treat of visiting Frank Lloyd Wright-built homes in Buffalo. A lovely suite in the restored Roycroft Inn was an unexpected pleasure.

What I particularly liked about this program was that there was a lot of love, pride, and personal effort put into it by the program leaders. It was awesome to be invited to their Roycroft-designed houses and to be enveloped in the Roycraft/Arts and Crafts ambiance as a living experience.

This was an enjoyable program on the Arts and Crafts Movement with a strong emphasis on the Roycroft Movement. The program included three craft demonstratiosn by current Roycroft Craftsmen: silk screening, glass cutting and metal working. We had two days of field trips to Frank Lloyd Wright homes as well as other architectural structures in the Buffalo area.

The Roycroft Inn was an enjoyable place to stay. Each room had at least one original Roycroft piece--we had two. It took us a while to fine the marks.

In East Aurora we visited three Roycroft homes (one a museum) and three churches with Roycroft connections (one with Tiffany windows.) If you have the opportunity of an optional vist to the Millard Fillmore house take the tour. The docents do an excellent job.

There are excellent gift shops at the FLW homes and on the Roycroft campus.

It was helpful to stay in the Roycroft Inn--we felt we were steeped in the American Arts and Craft tradition and the legacy of Elbert Hubbard. Leaders of the course very generously had the group over to receptions and meals in their homes--and showed us what if was like to live with Arts and Crafts furnishings and accessories. Tours of Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings (including a mausoleum!)in Buffalo were terrific. I could have used some additional printed material before arriving. This is a subject that's new to me; and I felt like I'd arrived a bit after the course was already under way. Roycroft Inn was a wonderful place to stay; we ate at a variety of places; meals varied in quality from poor to outstanding--overall quite adequate.
