Over the years, hundreds of guests have taken advantage of visiting the artists in their studios during the tour weekends, which showcase pottery, jewellery, collages, paintings, mixed-media assemblages, photography, metal sculpture, stained glass, woodcarvings, blown glass and more. The tour weekends have been consistently scheduled throughout the years; the Summer Tour is held on the Saturday and Sunday weekend following the Civic Holiday and the Fall Tour takes place on the weekend following the Canadian Thanksgiving.
Most members open their studios year round by appointment, yet the studio tours give visitors a chance to view current work as well as archived work, and always some work in progress. Visitors can watch an artist demonstrate their craft and truly engage in the experience of a “living studio”, gaining insight into their processes, inspiration, and creative energy. Original, one of a kind work is always for sale directly from the artist.
