Each year on Thanksgiving weekend guild members open their private studios to the public. This special opportunity allows visitors to observe artisans working in media like wood, floor cloths, stonework, jewelry, ceramics, glassware, fiber, sculpture and many more. A local vineyard also participates in the tour. The 16th annual Artisans Guild Open Studio and Vineyard Tour will be held on November 23 and 24.

The guild looks now and in the future to foster growth in the arts on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
