The Vermont Craft Council’s Spring Open Studio Weekend, set Saturday and Sunday, will include 13 artists in 12 studios and one gallery in southeastern Windham County. Of those artists, eight are members of Brattleboro-West Arts.
On this self-guided tour, participating studios will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, with many sites offering demonstrations as well as the opportunity to purchase art and talk to the professional artists who made it.
During May, visitors to the Vermont Welcome Center on Interstate 91 northbound in Guilford, Vt., can preview samples of works from some of the studios on the tour.
