The Country Roads Directory of Artisans
The rural roads that wind from Restoule, Callander to Bonfield connect a group of unique artisan studios. These artisans use their work to share their relationship to this Northern Ontario landscape of blue sky, lakes, wildlife, trees and fields of wildflowers.
The fruits of their labours take many forms and each shop is worth a visit.
This collection of artisans adds to the rich cultural experience of our region. Generations from across the globe have been inspired by the quality handmade art and fine craft of this area.
Each of the studios operates independently, some with regular hours, and others for special events or by appointment. Also, many Country Roads Artisans participate in the region’s farmers markets, art sales and craft shows. Some are represented at local shops and galleries. Visit each studio page for hours of operation, event information and contact number.
