East Austin Studio Tour

The whole east side of Austin is abuzz in anticipation for this year's East Austin Studio Tour. This, the 10th anniversary season, will feature over 300 artists in nearly 140 studio spaces. There is so much great stuff to see--make sure to pick up your tour book and start planning your routes today.

Here at stop Number 133 on Cherrywood Road we'll be featuring lots of art and jewelry made from upcycled materials. Holli Brown of Dish It Out Jewelry will be on hand with some of her lovely broken plate jewelry. The amazing upcycled tire mirrors from Flippin' Retire will once again adorn our front yard and this year Lee Anne will also be debuting a few pieces of her new collage work.

As in years past, folks will have a chance to sit and try their hand at some mosaic work and I'll also have some of my favorite jewelry tools out for show and tell. You can even have a shot at punching your own tin circles. It's great fun for the whole family. Our doors will be open from 11am to 6pm all four days, so hopefully you'll get a chance to stop by.

We're fortunate to live in a neighborhood filled with all sorts of creative people. A dozen of those folks are on the tour and within walking distance of our place, so be sure to also check out at least a few of our talented neighbors.
