Leicester Studio Tour
August 16 & 17, 10
a.m. to 6 p.m.
The ninth annual "Come to Leicester" studio tour will be held from 10am to 6pm on Saturday August 16 and Sunday August 17. This year the free self-guided tour will feature the work of twenty potters. Local and invited potters will open their studios located, throughout scenic Leicester, North Carolina, just outside Asheville for the two day event showcasing a variety of fine works in clay.
"This year's tour will focus on pottery, a true heritage craft in our state. Styles from wood-fired functional stoneware to whimsical figurative pieces will be represented in the works of prominate potters." says tour chairman Doc Welty.
The artists will be at five different locations in Leicester, Four studios and the Addison Farms Vinyard. See our downloadable map and artist information pages.
Samples of each Artist's work will be displayed at Wildberry Lodge Bed & Breakfast to help you plan your route. The lodge is located between Leicester highway and Newfound road at 135 Potato Branch Road and has served as hospitality host for the tour; nine years running. So make sure you save the weekend for a beautiful ride through the senic countryside, just outside of Asheville, to visit with our artists and pick up a piece of their work. The welcome mat is out, refreshments are on the table and we look forward to seeing you August 16 & 17.
