Looking for something unique and local for the special people on your Christmas shopping list?

Starting Wednesday, the 26th annual Cedar and Yellow Point Artisans’ Association Country Christmas Tour is a great chance to find art that was made by your neighbours.

The tour takes place Nov. 19-23. Everyone is invited to visit the 23 local artisans’ studios, shops, galleries and farms from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on this self-guided tour through the countryside.

On the tour, you’ll find pottery, metalwork, native art, glass work, paintings and prints, ornaments, jewelry, quilting, woodwork, quilts, alpaca garments, stained glass, wood furniture, garden art and much more. There are also herb, cranberry and honey farms, and many of the stops along the tour will  feature guest artists.

The Cedar-Yellow Point Artisans’ Association Country Christmas Tour allows the public to experience firsthand the local talent, all drawing inspiration from the scenic surroundings. The artisans will be your hosts during the tour, displaying their work, demonstrating techniques and answering your questions.
