One of the best ways we can think of to shop local, is to check out Berkeley Artisans Holiday Open Studios, when over 100 handpicked artists and craftspeople at studios, workshops and galleries in Berkeley, open their doors to the public during the 23rd annual Berkeley Artisans Holiday Open Studios.
Weekends, 11-6 p.m., November 30 thru Dec 22nd.
This self-guided tour presents a unique opportunity to meet the artists, to buy original & creative gifts, and to see working studios.
The event is free and there is an easy to use guide to help navigate your day of exploration.
A list of participants and a map are available on-line at www.berkeleyartisans.com. The Berkeley Artisans Holiday Open Studios map will be printed weekly during the event in the Express.
