Thank you everyone who came out for the 2019 tour. Keep checking back for Tour 2020 details. Coming soon!

Each year Whatcom artists open their studio doors to give visitors an insight to their creative process. This year we have over 40 participating artists working in a variety of mediums — clay, painting, mixed media, photography, sculpted glass, and more. 


Many artists hold demonstrations and tours of their workspaces. Remember to wear your comfortable shoes and pack some snacks. Our artists look forward to seeing you soon!

2019 Marked a Tour Milestone

We celebrated our 25th year and couldn't more proud!

WAST has been so lucky to have many local artists and visitors to support the tour — and to do it amidst a growing and vibrant community. 

Cheers to WAST and to another 25 years!
