On October 5 & 6, the MKE Fine Craft Studio Tour will showcase the working studios of 13 Wisconsin Designer Crafts Council members residing in Milwaukee County. Each “Host” studio will also feature one or more WDCC guest artists for a total of 36 participating artists. Attendees will be able to view the creative environments where the host artists develop and produce their wares while also shopping for one-of-a-kind artisan goods displayed during this two-day event. Each location will offer a distinct variety of fine crafts such as: fiber, leather, ceramics, woodworking, sculpture, metalsmithing, photography, mixed media, jewelry, painting and glass.
This open studio event is a self-guided driving tour of 13 WDCC member studios in Milwaukee County.
