Two Pottery Tours in Tristate Region
Tours of pottery and ceramic studios are coming up in the Tristate region at the end of September and beginning of October.
The first of the two, the Berkshire Pottery Tour, will be the weekend of Sept. 25-26 in Southern Berkshire County.
Five studios and eight artists are included (although one artist is participating online only). The studios are open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission is free, families are welcome.
The map and list of artists can be found at www.berkshirepotterytour.com. Visitors who come to every studio can have each potter sign their map, and be entered into a drawing for the Grand Prize, a mug from each of the five potters.
Orange and white Berkshire Pottery Tour road signs will help drivers find their way from studio to studio.
On Oct. 16 and 17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., 19 potters at nine studios in Connecticut and New York state will take part in the Clay Way Studio Tour.
There will be three stops in Wingdale, N.Y., and six in South Kent, Warren, West Cornwall, Cornwall Bridge and Washington, Conn.
The event is free and the work hits all price points. Preview each artist’s work and find the printable map at www.ClayWay.net.
