Located within 25 kilometres of picturesque Perth, the Tour showcases one of Eastern Ontario’s finest selections of contemporary fine arts and crafts against a backdrop of Mother Nature at her best.

The real heart of the Perth Autumn Studio Tour is of course, the creative process that allows us to produce the work we love. Some studios are able to give demonstrations but many are given over to the studio tour and guest artists so this is not possible. To help you see us at work we have started a PHOTO GALLERY of the actual work process. As well, our studio links provide some preview images of the wide variety of wonderful works you will see when you join us on our tour.

Now celebrating it's 25th year, the Tour has added many new artisans for a total of 21 participants. All artisans have been juried. Most are from the Perth area while others have been invited to attend from other parts of Eastern Ontario. To minimize your driving time we’re presenting our works in 6 different rural studios clustered near Perth in very accessible and beautiful locations. There are demonstrations at some of the studio stops, and several feature outstanding garden walks.

Help us celebrate 25 years being one of
Ontario’s most prestigious studio tours!

The Perth Autumn Studio Tour is a very special showcase for contemporary fine crafts. In 1999 this extraordinary group of artisans was awarded a grant by the Ontario Arts Council in recognition of the high standard of work presented over the previous ten years. It was the only studio tour in Ontario to receive such an award.
