2012 Artisan Tour Wrap-up

The Walpole Artisans have wrapped up another successful studio tour.  Lots of fun was had by all as you can see from these photos.  Thanks to all who attended and supported local arts in their community!

Now let's head on up to Barnett Hill Road to see Bill Shannon's beautiful woodworking studio with a gorgeous view of the Connecticut River Valley.  Joining him this year is Judy Stalus with photography, jewelry and hand knitted items.

Hope you enjoyed our tour...see you next year!
