Here is one of the reasons why it’s been very quiet in my world of blogging….
Together with six other fellow artisans, I have been involved in creating a group to help promote food and art in the Cowichan Valley. The Cowichan Valley Artisans consist of 13 creative souls, who have dedicated themselves to their craft, be it glass, woodwork, clay or food, and who have now joined forces making a visit to the Valley even more alluring.
We are celebrating the launch of our year-round studio tour with a reception at Benchmark Gallery 28 Station St. in Duncan, June 30th, 5 – 9pm. Brock Windsor, one of our food artisans from Stone Soup Inn in Lake Cowichan, will be preparing some delicious appies for the event. There will be wine to accompany the food and Victor will be offering some tasty teafarm teas to top it all off.
We have created a beautiful brochure with map and website – www.CowichanValleyArtisans.com – to help guide people to our studios.
To debut this new group, all studios and venues will be open July 1st through 4th from 10am to 5pm. The studios remain open throughout the year. Please check each individual studio for their open hours.
See you on the tour.
