Heartwood Studio is a member of the Cowichan Artisans group, who normally hold two open-studio tours per year, a Spring Tour in April and a Fall Tour on the first weekend in November. Last year, due to Covid-19, both tours had to be cancelled. This year, the group has decided to go ahead with a modified version of their Spring Tour on the weekend of April 23-25, with Covid safety protocols in place. Please go to their website for more information. Here at Heartwood Studio, however, we have made the reluctant decision to NOT participate in the Spring Tour ourselves because of the rising numbers of Covid cases on the Island. We are scheduled to receive our vaccines soon, though, and hope to reopen our studio to appointments in early May. We will keep you informed via our website's homepage and our Facebook page. In the meantime, we welcome telephone and email orders.
Heartwood Studio also participates in the annual Visions Art Studio Tour, held every year in early July. This year, unfortunately, the July Tour had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation but we are hoping that by July of 2021 things will have improved to the point where our annual tour can go ahead. Please check back here in the late Spring.
