These Sooke studios must undergo a selection process to ensure that they are of a consistent standard and are comfortable for the public to visit and browse. Although they are open year round, many studios put on unique displays, demonstrations, or bring in Guest Artists during the special events they put on throughout the year.
Beautiful, unique, functional turnings from locally salvaged burled and figured maple, red and yellow cedar burl, red alder, and western yew. Bowls, boxes, platters, mirrors, and much more can be found in this ocean view studio Drop-ins welcome throughout the year.
