Studio tours offer a different way to cruise the day away and enjoy the region’s vibrant arts scene as well as the stunning autumn colours. You’ll find jewelry, pottery, paintings, photography and more at the Dundas Studio Tour and Brant Studio Tour in October and the Art in Action Burlington Studio Tour in November.
