On our tour you can watch an artist paint, attend a wine tasting, try on some jewellery and still have time to pick up a one of a kind sculpture on your way home. With 30 studios to discover on the year-round self-guided tour, all that you require is a current studio tour map and a bit of spare time to enjoy the studios of your choice. Some of the studios offer a unique experience such as a workshop tour or a demonstration on creating a work of art. Our Studio Tour's diverse selection also includes baked goods, wine and cheese shops that will keep the foodies nibbling the day away.
Our colourful map outlines what each artist creates and the location of their studio. Our free maps are available at B.C tourism information centers, on ferries serving the island, in marinas, hotels and B&Bs.
The map can also be downloaded here (5.6MB PDF).

As a result of the overwhelming success of our first book of Artisan Profiles published and launched in April of 2009, we have created a new updated version for 2013. Our book provides you with further information on the artists, accompanied by many beautiful new images that capture the studio tour experience.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the book.
