The Kissing Bridge Trail Studio Tour provides an excellent opportunity for local artists and artisans to showcase and sell their work from their studios which are otherwise not regularly open to the public. The tour is open to artists with studios in and around Woolwich Township and the rural area of the Kissing Bridge Trail. Guest artists are welcome but must also apply. All work must be original, created by the artist, including but not limited to the following: painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, pottery, blown glass, carving, fibre art, printmaking, collage, stained glass, weaving and jewelry.
The KBTST strives to maintain a professional tour with artists who are serious about their craft. Below are some guidelines to consider as you think about applying to be an artist on this tour.

The Kissing Bridge Trail Studio Tour is a cooperative effort of the participating artists. All participating artists are expected to attend scheduled meetings (usually once a month from Jan to end of October). Those participating will be asked to take on a role in support of the tour (e.g. signage, brochure, contacting media, etc.). As well, all participating artists are expected to assist in the distribution of brochures and promote the tour on social media if they have social media accounts.
