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.
