Program #12718RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Join us at the historic Arts and Crafts community of Roycroft — founded by the entrepreneur Elbert Hubbard in 1895 — to explore Western New York's turn-of-the-century trail of architecture, art, craft and philosophy. Discover the renaissance of preservation, 21st Century decorative arts and the holistic ideals of an era of new thought. Field trips to the Frank Lloyd Wright Martin Complex and Graycliff Estate offer a look at the architect’s local gems, while an investigation into the works of William Morris and John Ruskin offer a look at the roots of the Arts and Crafts Movement.


Highlights

• Meet Roycroft Renaissance artisans and observe their crafts during on-site demonstrations.
• Delight in evening receptions at two historic Roycroft homes and experience their ambiance.
• Learn about the life and work of Roycroft’s charismatic founder, Elbert Hubbard.

Activity Notes

Walking up to 5 city blocks; standing up to 1-1/2 hours. Climbing stairs and standing during visits to historic homes.

Coordinated by The Foundation for the Study of the Arts & Crafts Movement at Roycroft.
