Since we moved to New Dundee in 2010, we have been participating in the Rural Routes Studio Tour. This takes place annually the first weekend of November, and includes artists and artisans in the rural area to the south-west of Kitchener. Geographically this would be the southern part of Wilmot Township (including the towns of New Dundee, Baden, and New Hamburg) and the northern part of Blenheim township, about as far south as the hamlet of Washington.
For two days, members of the Tour open up their studios and workshops so the public can see their work. Some of the members offer demonstrations, and even hands-on participation. All the members have their works available for sale.
For the 2013 tour, its 10th anniversary, we have a freshly-designed web site at www.ruralroutes.org, and are featuring a monthly auction of works from the various members of the tour.
This year, the tour takes place Friday and Saturday, November 1st and 2nd, 10am to 5pm. We still have a while to decide what we will have in terms of demonstrations.
