About Us

Lackland Well is an artist residency on a Virginia Century Farm in Farmville, VA established in 1787. The property has been in the Oertel family for over a hundred years passed down from craftsmen to craftsmen. As of now, we aim to carry on this legacy of makers and offer up space for creative community, learning and sharing new skillsets, and falling in love with your practice all over again. Musicians, writers, book binders, boat builders, come one come all!

Lackland Well is under the direction of partners Laura Oertel and Rebecca Daryl Smith.
