Casa del Herrero invites you to join us for the return of our annual summer celebration!

Steedman’s Summer Shindig will take place on August 13, 2022, from 4:30pm to 7:30pm. Guests will enjoy a classical harpist, live acoustic folk music, elegant cocktail cuisine and chilled beverages throughout the Casa’s summer gardens. Individual tickets are $250.

For a keepsake you won’t forget, pre-purchase a vintage tintype portrait session– to take place at the Shindig–with local artist, The Alchemistress. A tintype portrait is a historic photographic artform, which predates film photography, and produces a unique image on a thin sheet of metal or glass. The result is a strikingly romantic one-of-a-kind heirloom, produced with authentic early 19th century camera lenses. One portrait session cost is $450 and you will receive one 4×5 inch tintype portrait on glass, and a digital file of the artwork. *

To purchase Steedman’s Summer Shindig tickets and tintype portrait sessions, please call Casa del Herrero’s office at (805) 565-5653, Monday through Friday 9:00am to 5:00pm.

We hope you will join us for this special occasion! Thank you for celebrating the role of historic spaces in the fabric of our vibrant community!

*The tintype portrait process requires that the varnish topcoat dry properly. Accordingly, the portrait must remain with the artist for a few days following the event portrait session. The resulting tintype portrait can be picked up at Casa del Herrero the week following the event, or delivery arrangements can be made through the Casa’s office.
