Ernest A. Batchelder was an author, designer, educator, artist, and tilemaker who settled in Pasadena in the early 20th century. His tiles can be seen in Arts and Crafts era houses and gardens all over Southern California.

The day will included:
  • A visit to the Pasadena Museum of History’s exhibit, “Batchelder: Filemaker,” with the exhibit’s curator, Laura Verlaque
  • Lunch in the garden of the Batchelder House as guests of Professor Robert Winter
  • A visit to the historic Pasadena Playhouse, where we will see a Batchelder fountain in the courtyard, and the Batchelder fireplace in the Playhouse Library, a room usually closed to the public.
