The Artisans Studio Tour was founded over 25 years ago to enhance the community's awareness of professional artisans living and working in Charlottesville and surrounding counties.

Tour artisans have gone through a rigorous approval process that ensures that the crafts are of the highest quality. With over 20 open studios hosting more than 40 artisans, many visitors make  the Tour a two-day adventure.

Craft lovers will see displays of some of Virginia’s finest crafts including pottery, furniture, weaving, fabric design, jewelry, stained glass, wood turning, and quilting. There are artisan demonstrations, opportunities to learn about the working processes in each studio, and some hands-on experience. The Tour provides an excellent opportunity to purchase the work of talented area artisans as unique gifts or for your own collection.
