SAVE THE DATE! MAY 8, 9 & 10, 2020: St. Croix Valley Pottery ONLINE TOUR on Mother’s Day Weekend
St. Croix Valley Pottery Tour Becomes the Online Tour
The 28th Annual 2020 Saint Croix Valley Pottery Tour will not be taking place in Minnesota at the seven host studios this year. After much discussion weighing safety logistics, and the critical need for social distancing, the Saint Croix Valley Pottery Tour will launch an Online Tour this year.
This is not a decision that our community took lightly, and we understand that many of us as potters depend upon The Saint Croix Valley Pottery Tour income to survive. We also know that a wonderful community of pottery lovers anticipate attending this event every year.
To serve this dedicated audience, the Online Tour will offer Web Sales and Virtual Shopping appointments with host and guest artists on the Tour weekend dates, May 8-10, 2020.
The Online Tour will be found at minnesotapotters.com, the Saint Croix Valley Pottery Tour website. It will consist of:
- A list of participating potters with contact information for shoppers to set up virtual appointments. You can chat with artists, see their work and studios, and purchase pottery using video chat.
- A list of participating potters web shops, where a robust selection of beautiful pieces will be published en masse for sale on May 8 at 10 AM
Please check back to the minnesotapotters.com web site in early April when you may begin making virtual shopping appointments with the potters. Follow @stcroixvalleypotterytour on Instagram for previews and updates.
On May 8th web shops will go live at 10:00 a.m Central Daylight Time.
The Saint Croix Valley Pottery Tour hosts and guest potters have prepared a bountiful supply of pots that they have been working on for many months. We were dreaming of seeing you all again here in Minnesota but look forward to seeing you online on Mothers Day Weekend.
We appreciate your support and thank you for your continued patronage.
