From pottery and paintings to aboriginal art and massive metal sculptures, experiencing the self-guided Chilliwack Artisan Tours is always memorable.

The tours include 12 suggested stops all over Chilliwack. Studios have varying hours of operation, and some prefer to receive visitors by appointment, so be sure to contact the studios in advance when planning your route.

Highlights include the brightly coloured, crystalline-glazed porcelain pottery of Holly McKeen at Greendale Pottery & Country Guest House, the diverse masks, prints, jewelry, and other native art at the Sto:lo Artisan Centre, and the awe-inspiring stainless steel sculptures of eagles and dragons (weighing upwards of 5,000lb) by Kevin Stone at Metal Animation Studio.

There are also special seasonal shows and events, like the annual three-day Chilliwack Christmas Craft Crawl (end of November).
