1st Annual Windsor Essex Open Studio Tour

For four days in September-October, local artists will open their studios to curious visitors, inviting them to talk, check out how they work, and buy artwork if interested.

Tours are free and self-guided, just follow the map. With more than 30 artists participating, there’s a wide range of arts and crafts to take in, from painting and photography to ceramics, and more. Artists will display works of art in their studios and at local community centres, inviting the public not only to see what they create, but how and where they create it. Artists will talk about their work and give demonstrations.

Friday September 30 and Saturday October 1
Friday October 7 and Saturday October 8

Times vary depending on the studio. For the locations of all the participants please visit http://www.weopenstudiotour.com/ for a tour map.

Palimpsest will be taking part in the studio tour. Please drop by between nine and three to see a demonstration of our Gordon oldstyle platen press. During studio hours Dawn will be working the letterpress and putting together some hand-sewn chapbooks.
