The Gamble House presents
A craftsman's tour of The Gamble House.

Over 100 years ago a team of gifted craftsmen labored for 11 months to create The Gamble House. Inspired by the designs of Pasadena architects Charles and Henry Greene, the craftsman contractors led by John and Peter Hall, Scandinavian woodworkers, cut, turned, joined, carved, and hand-rubbed 17 species of wood into the House and furnishings that today are recognized as one of the greatest achievements in American architecture and craftsmanship.


Tour Guide: Jim Ipekjian

Contemporary woodworker Jim Ipekjian has studied the art and craft of the Greenes and the Halls for more than 20 years, and has an intimate knowledge of how their works were created. Mr. Ipekjian's Details & Joinery tour reveals from a craftsman's point of view how The Gamble House was crafted. He discusses why woods were chosen, explains joinery techniques, and explores the thinking and collaboration that led to the actual craftsmanship. He examines details of the house and furniture, and reveals the intricacies of inlay, metal work and art glass created especially for the House. Mr. Ipekjian shares his passion and wonder for the exquisite work created by these master architects and craftsmen.


This 3-hour tour is limited to a group of 10.


Admission is $75 per person.
