I bought my ticket for the Pasadena Woodworking in America conference a couple weeks ago. As I was planning my drive out and some of the other things I want to see while I’m out there, I discovered that the Maloof estate is just 45 minutes from the Pasadena convention center. I checked the Maloof Foundation’s website and the have docent-led tours Thursday and Saturday afternoons. With all the classes I have scheduled for Saturday, Thursday is the only real option for me to take a tour of this place.
Yesterday I emailed the Maloof staff to inquire about the tour and they said tours are typically done at 1, 2, & 3pm Thursdays and Friday for $10 per person but if you have a group of 10 or more, you can get a custom tour at a different time for $15 dollars a person. I’d like to put together a group tour for anyone that can get to Pasadena a day before the conference. Maybe we can carpool for those that are flying in. I’ll be driving to the conference and I will have room for 2-3 people in my car.
