Heartwood Studio has been a long-time member of the Cowichan Artisans group, who normally hold two open-studio tours per year. Last year, due to Covid-19, the Spring Tour was cancelled but the Fall Tour went ahead, albeit without our own participation. This year, it is expected that both tours will take place, with the Spring Tour happening on May 13, 14 and 15. Reluctantly, we have decided not to be part of the Artisans tours this year but we support this talented group of artists and artisans and wish them all great success in their creative endeavours. Our own studio will remain open year-round by appointment (250-746-5480, email@example.com), or customers can find Ken's work at the four Vancouver Island galleries listed above.
Heartwood Studio has also participated for many years in the annual Visions Art Studio Tour, held in the Cowichan Valley every July. Unfortunately, the Tour had to be cancelled in both 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid pandemic. This year, with the situation finally improving, the Visions group is considering once again opening their studios for a much-anticipated July tour. Please stay tuned to their website (www.visionsarttour.ca) for more information. As with the Cowichan Artisans, our studio will not be included in this tour but we will be open by appointment year-round.
