With up to ten emerging craftspeople at work in their own studios, there is always something new to discover.

The Quidi Vidi Village Artisan Studios is a craft incubator with 10 studio spaces. Artisans rent out a studio where they will work and sell to the public to grow their business. The Studios provides them with tools such as workshops and training so they can maximize their potential as emerging entrepreneurs.

The Studios is open to the public with free admission and you can look around as you please. The craft studios are upstairs, with an elevator for accessibility.
