42 Artisans. 23 Studios. 2 Days. 22 Years.
For one weekend every fall, artisans in Central Virginia open their doors for you to explore their working spaces. This fall on November 12 & 13 from 10 – 5 see where they create; learn why they create; and examine how they create. It's a fun, unique opportunity and a great way to spend a fall weekend! Consider making the Tour a 2-day experience and enjoy other area offerings. We are partnering with Oakhurst Inn, a boutique hotel in Charlottesville offering rooms for reduced rate to Tour visitors. For more information about Oakhurst Inn and other lodging options visit our lodging page. The popular passport program provides a chance to win a $300 work of art from any of the Tour artisans. Thanks to our passport sponsor Jos T. Samuels Realtors.
Easily accessed by following the map and directions, the 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.
