Eldorado Studio Tour


I was able to take a few hours and see part of the Eldorado Studio Tour the 15th of May.  This studio tour is impressive.  Their brochure was beautiful with good photos of some work so you could start forming some plan of attack.  There were 75 studios to visit, so seeing all of them was definitely not possible.  There was a preview gallery which was very helpful as I could tell right away what art I wanted to see more of and what I wanted to skip.

This is Sheila Burke, tapestry artist.  She has just finished this beautiful studio (of which admittedly I was very jealous).








And a beautiful doubleweave shawl by Jennifer Moore.

  1. What a good idea, to have a preview gallery for the tour! I have never done the tours here (there is one in the fall and one in the spring) because my studio is upstairs, and I don't really like the idea of people having to go through my whole house and up stairs. But if there was a preview, maybe it would weed out those that weren't interested in fiber. I am considering doing the fall one, and having stuff downstairs for people to see, just letting those who ask to see the looms go upstairs.
    Have you ever participated in one? How did it go?
