about us

The Perth Autumn Studio Tour (PAST) - held annually on Thanksgiving weekend - is a well-established event at which craftspeople, makers and artists sell a diverse range of work. Our tour has earned a solid reputation as a very well-organized tour with high calibre work. Over the course of the weekend, approximately 3000 visitors travel between our studios which are concentrated in the beautiful rural area to the west of Perth, ON. At each studio, our visitors have an opportunity to meet host artists and their guests, to view interesting work spaces, and to purchase work from talented creators.

For our guest artists, our intention is to provide an enjoyable and affordable opportunity to engage directly with a large number of customers from (primarily) Ottawa, Kingston, Toronto, and the local area.
