Artist Studios

Our artist studios are open to the public for tours on the second Saturday of the month from May – October.

If you have questions about these self-guided tours or would like to schedule a private tour, email info@grovewood.com.

Artistic Tradition

Grovewood Village is home to 8 working artist studios, occupied by 10 local makers. These workspaces were originally built to house the weaving operations of Biltmore Industries, an Arts and Crafts enterprise that played a significant role in the Appalachian Craft Revival during the early 20th century. Today, our resident artists create jewelry, pottery, sculpture and more, in the same workshops where the famed Biltmore Handwoven Homespun was once made.

Art Studio Tours

On the second Saturday of the month from May through October, the resident artists at Grovewood Village will open up their studios to the public, allowing visitors to gain insight into their creative process and view their most recent works. Tours are free and self-guided and will take place from 11am – 4pm on each date.

Please Note

Not every studio will be open. Our artists all have different schedules and often travel for exhibitions and workshops. If there is a particular artist you want to meet, please contact us ahead of time to make sure their studio will be open. You can find information about our resident artists listed below.
