2023 Southern Hands Artist Studio Tour

Home   - HanDen Studios Freestyle Weaving Art Walk Free Event 2023 Southern Hands Artist Studio Tour

Have you ever wondered what artists’ studios look like, or what an artist does or needs? If you have, then this tour is for you. If you haven’t, this tour is still for you!

The SHAS Tour is a tour of artists’ studios — like a tour of homes, but artists’ studios instead!

Once a year artists in Fayette and Coweta Counties invite you into their studios to give you a look at the tools they use and to explain the process that takes them from supplies to finished pieces of one of a kind, handmade, art. As you tour, you will discover that not all studios are the same and actually vary widely from one artist to another.

This event began 10 years ago with the mission to educate the general public about the process of creating art. We wanted to share with you the beauty of creating art and the fun and frustration of it all.

HanDen Studios Weaving will be open to the public on the following dates/times:

  • Saturday 11/11/2023 — 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
  • Sunday 11/12/2023 — 11:00 am to 5:00 pm

During the tour, guests will find handwoven items to adorn both their body (scarves, shawls, and a variety of vests and other finished garments) and their home (pillows, wall art, etc). They will also find:

  • Hand-knit items
  • Silk scarves that are hand dyed
  • Handmade purses and small bags
  • Items with personally digitized and machine embroidered designs

We anticipate having a loom or two for guests to sit and weave and a variety of “table talks” about how specific items are made. In addition, the local spinning group will be at the studio on Sunday of the tour demonstrating spinning and answering questions.
