Madawaska Valley Studio Tour To Celebrate 29th Anniversary


The artists, craftspeople and makers of the Madawaska Valley Studio Tour invite you on a
journey to explore the creative landscape of the region.
Over two weekends, July 16th-18th and October 1st-3rd, dozens of studios will open their
doors giving visitors the unique opportunity to meet local artisans, learn about their creative
process and purchase high-quality handmade products directly from the creators.
“The studio tour has had a long history in the valley and it has grown dramatically in terms of
the number of artists on the tour and the visitors coming to the studios,” says artist and tour
co-ordinator Joyce Burkholder. “This is our 29th year!”
“There’s something for everyone,” Burkholder explains. “We have painters, potters, jewellers,
fibre and glass artists and woodworkers as well as a toy maker, basket maker, blacksmith,
knifesmith, candlemaker, a tie dye artist and maker of natural skin care products.”
The studios dot the countryside from Combermere to Eganville and pass through the most
beautiful and scenic rural areas of the valley.

on the weekends of July 16th-18th and October 1st-3rd. All studios and visitors are asked to
adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols.
