On August 3rd and 4th, 2013, potters will welcome you to their studios at the 3rd annual Bayfield Peninsula Pottery Tour. This is your once a year opportunity to visit the studios – each one unique – meet the artisans, and view and purchase pottery from the source. Each site has special demonstrations for you to see as well as hands-on activities at a few studios.
In between each location, soak up unparalleled vistas of Lake Superior’s Wisconsin shore. Your ferry ride to Madeline Island puts you on open water with scenic shoreline views of Bayfield and Madeline Island. Be sure to plan enough time to savor local food and visit the orchards and shops. But most of all, relax and breathe in the fresh northern air!
This event is supported in part by a grant from the Chequamegon Bay Arts Council and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.
