This self-guided tour presents a unique opportunity to meet the artists, to buy original & creative gifts, and to see working craft studios. The art walk gives viewers a glimpse into the creative process, and the opportunity to sign up for classes and workshops. Many studios are in the same building, or are clustered within walking distance. This much anticipated, popular event is known for the high quality of the work shown.
