Welcome to our wonderful world of arts, crafts, gardening, teaching, learning and reaching out to the planet from our studio in the mountains of Pennsylvania.

I'm Priscilla Houliston and my vision for The1870 is to create something wonderful that lots of people can experience, even if they never step foot inside. I'm making videos all the time that will help you create, imagine and learn along with me.
