Covered Bridge Artisans Host 29th Annual Fall Studio Tour

“PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREE”: Hand-painted glass pieces by Karen Caldwell of Sunflower Glass Studio in Stockton are among the works featured in the 29th Annual Covered Bridge Artisans Fall Studio Tour, to be held November 24, 25, and 26.

Held November 24, 25, and 26 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, the 29th annual Covered Bridge Artisans Fall Studio Tour is a self-guided driving tour located in the Delaware River Valley of lower Hunterdon and Bucks counties. The studio tour will take place in seven professional artists’ studios in the Lambertville, Stockton, Sergeantsville, and Solebury and New Hope, Pa., along with 14 additional artists at the Sergeantsville Firehouse Events Center. All studios are located within five miles of Stockton. Visitors can visit the workshops, shop for distinctive gifts, and learn from each artist about how and where they create their work. 

The idea for the tour started with a group of six area artists 30 years ago. Each was a professional in their craft and worked in  unique, rural, historic studio settings. They decided to create a tour that introduced people to their remote locations and allowed for a direct relationship with the artist. Visitors get the chance to tour the studio, see work in progress, discuss new commissions, and buy finished work. 

Over the last 29 years, returning visitors have enjoyed seeing the artists’ work evolve and the circle of exhibitors grow. The group has a great depth of variety with 24 artisans working in glass, jewelry, ceramics, photography, cast bronze, painting, weaving, bookbinding, woodworking, quilting, and more.
