The Lansdowne Location
Join us in a cozy home atmosphere to learn, rejuvenate, and be inspired. All minutes from Center City Philadelphia: a true urban oasis. Workshops are held in private retreat-like setting. Nestled on 2.5 acres, in this historic Queen Anne home that was restyled in the early 1900’s by William Lightfoot Price, into an Arts & Crafts home/office. This space provides ample opportunities for educational experiences while soaking in the beautiful aesthetic of fine craftsmanship of yesteryear and surrounding natural setting, which was once considered one of the largest Japanese garden in America.
The property was once owned by Charles J. Pillings, a noted medical equipment designer and manufacturer (incorrectly printed as “Pullings” on the old, 1928 postcard, below). More information about the property may be seen in an article written in 1906 and featured in House & Garden. Current images may be found in the Gallery of this website.
