The Artisans Guild – Eastern Shore of Virginia’s annual Holiday Studio Tour returns to showcase Shore artists and artisans on Friday, November 26 and Saturday, November 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (both days). This is the 19th year of the Thanksgiving weekend tradition, and it highlights 45 Guild artisans at 18 unique stops from Cape Charles to Onancock. This free, self-driving tour encompasses home studios, historic Shore buildings, and a local winery.
Opportunities abound to see demonstrations by member artisans and to learn about their craft, to enjoy wine tastings, and to buy truly one of a kind holiday gifts. Featured craftspeople offering works for sale include flat artists, potters, woodworkers, sculptors, photographers, jewelry makers, fiber artists, glassblowers, and decoy carvers. Attendees who visit multiple Tour Stops have the chance to win up to $300 in shopping credit with their favorite Tour artisan.
