EVER WONDER WHAT AN ARTIST’S STUDIO REALLY LOOKS LIKE?
Here’s your chance to get a look behind the scenes. Take a self-guided tour and meet artists where they live and work. Many artists and craftspeople will open their studios for two consecutive fall weekends.
The Studio Tour is completely free of charge. You’ll get a chance to meet directly with the artists, and often see work not shown in gallery settings. You’ll visit the working spaces of both established and emerging artists, from basements to self contained studios.
WHERE TO BEGIN?
We suggest that you begin the Studio Tour at the Fergus Library.
Available at the Library:
- Maps and directions
- Tours of the heritage building
- Public washrooms
- Free Parking
During the tour, the studios will be open from 10 am to 5 pm.
Plan your trip! You can easily visit most of the Elora studios on foot. You could visit Elora and Fergus on a bike. Out-of-town studios require a car. Watch for our purple and steel sandwich board signs which will clearly mark studio locations.
