Albemarle County News Press Release:

Forty-five artisans in 25 studios throughout central Virginia will display their craft during the 23rd annual free Artisans Studio Tour on November 11 and 12, 2017.

The self-guided tour, free and open to the public, is an opportunity to talk to professional artisans in a studio environment and experience their passion for creating finely crafted objects.

There will be artisan demonstrations and opportunities to learn about the working processes throughout the Studio Tour. The tour provides an excellent opportunity to purchase the work of talented area artisans as unique gifts or for your own collection.

Each studio provides locally sourced refreshments and fine hospitality.

The Artisans Studio Tour was founded in 1994 by a group of Charlottesville area artisans to enhance the community's awareness of professional artisans living and working in the region.

This year marks the 23rd year that artists will open their studios and collaborate to make a public showing of their work. The studios and craftsmen are varied, but their commitment to the joy of fine craftsmanship pervades the tour.
