One weekend every fall, artisans in Central Virginia open their doors for you to explore their working spaces. This fall on November 11 & 12 from 10 am to 5 pm, you can see 45 artisans and their work in the spaces where they create it; learn why they create; and examine how they create. Consider making the Tour a two-day experience and enjoy other area offerings while you are here. What a great way to spend a fall weekend! 

The Passport Program gives you the opportunity to win shopping credit with a participating studio artisan of your choice. Simply pick up a Passport card at any studio during the weekend and receive a stamp from each studio you visit. Every visitor is eligible to win a $50 credit! Visit five or more studios for a chance to win a $300 credit!

Easily accessed by following the map and directions, the 23rd annual Tour is self-guided, free, and open to the public. Each studio on the Tour provides locally-sourced refreshments. For frequent updates about the Tour we encourage you to follow us on Facebook and Instagram or sign up for our email list below. This web site will have a complete list of 2017 studios and artisans and new directions and map in June 2017.
