tile works TOUR THE MERCER MILE WITH CLAYWORKS!

WHEN: MONDAY, DECEMBER 12, 8 AM-6 PM

Spend the day with Baltimore Clayworks as they tour Moravian Pottery & Tile Works and Henry Chapman Mercer's Fonthill Castle in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Doylestown, like other Bucks County communities, is known for its artists, history and other charms.

Henry Chapman Mercer (1856-1930) American archeologist, artifact collector, and fonthilltile-maker, built Moravian Pottery & Tile Works in 1912 in an effort to preserve the art of making ceramic tiles by hand. Tile Works is a "working history" museum where full-time ceramists and part-time apprentices create re-issues of the original designs from Henry C. Mercer's historical tile collection. Fonthill Castle was the home and showplace for Mercer's famed Moravian tiles that were produced during the American Arts & Crafts Movement.

Transportation via luxury coach, guided tours and a delectable lunch at a quaint bistro are included.
