Twenty-three of the mid- Islands’ most unique and celebrated artisans welcome visitors to the country setting at their studios, shops and farms. Each artisans will display their work, discus and demonstrate techniques, answer questions and serve light refreshments.

Studios on the tour include the Hazelwood Herb Farm, JoVic Pottery, Yellow Point Cranberries and the Barton-Leier Gallery. New this year are AC Designs, Hepburn Cottage and Yellow Point Willow.

The studios offer a selection of woodworking, weaving, sewing, native art, jewelry, paintings and furniture, plus home-made kitchen, bath and beauty products.
