Elora Fergus Studio Tour

We suggest that you begin the Studio Tour at the Fergus Library.

Available at the Library:

  • Maps and directions
  • Tours of the heritage building
  • Public washrooms
  • Free Parking

During the tour, the studios will be open from 10 am to 5 pm.

Plan your trip! You can easily visit most of the Elora studios on foot. You could visit Elora and Fergus on a bike. Out-of-town studios require a car. Watch for our purple and steel sandwich board signs which will clearly mark studio locations.

Explore the creative spaces of artist studios and meet the makers. 

Here’s your chance to get a look behind the scenes. Take a self-guided tour and meet artists where they live and work. Many artists and craftspeople will open their studios for two consecutive fall weekends.

The Studio Tour is completely free of charge. You’ll get a chance to meet directly with the artists, and often see work not shown in gallery settings. You’ll visit the working spaces of both established and emerging artists, from basements to self contained studios.

The first studio tour, in 1987, featured about a dozen artists in a "trial run" and it has grown over the years to become a staple of the fall art and tourism calendar throughout the area.

Approximately three dozen Centre Wellington artists working in almost every artistic medium take part—internationally known painters like Joel Masewich, award-winning glass artists like Stephen Kitras and Tim and Katherine McManus, plus jewellers, potters, sculptors, fabric artists, photographers, metal workers and encaustic artists.

The self-guided, free tour takes visitors on a delightful trek through historic Fergus and Elora, and out into the autumn countryside in the heart of southwestern Ontario. Home base is the restored stone school building now the Elora Centre for the Arts—one example of the wealth of history and heritage buildings visitors will find on the tour. Many are within short walking distance of each other.
