Each year the artists and craft makers in Putney open their studios to the public for the Putney Craft Tour. Held on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday after Thanksgiving, the self guided driving tour of Southern Vermont encourages you to stop in and visit dozens of artists studios. With 25 stops on the way you will meet artists and craftsman who create paintings, cheese, blown glass, pottery, iron work, woodwork and furniture, stained glass, hand made jewelry, quilts, and so much more.
Many studios will have live demonstrations with their art and crafts for sale.
Hand made tiles, ceramics, fabrics and even cheese makers will be represented this year at the Putney Craft Tour as well. Plus you can experience all this while driving casually through the beautiful country side of southern Vermont, along side rolling rivers and stream, through the green mountains. It’s a great way to pick up some locally crafted gifts for the holidays while taking some time for yourself.
So if you are “turkeyed out” after Thanksgiving and have dropped after your Black Friday shopping, come rest with us here at our Vermont B&B and take a few days and reconnect before you head back to work on Monday. And be sure to pick up the Putney Craft Tour Map, which we will of course have available for our guests.
The Putney Craft Tour is held Thanksgiving weekend each year, but the participating studios change annually. Be sure to check www.PutneyCrafts.com for the most recent listings.
