Open Studio Tours – Portland and Seattle

| 0

Please join us at one or both of the upcoming Open Studio Tours this fall! Guild members and artists skilled in fusing, blowing, stained glass, casting, jewelry, mosaic, and other art forms will have artwork available to purchase, along with demonstrations at some sites. Many of the studios are not normally open to the public, so don’t miss your chance to get a little peek into where the magic happens. Meet the artists, learn about their creative process, and find unique and beautiful items for sale. Get a head start on your holiday shopping list or buy something fabulous for yourself! Tours take place rain or shine.
