Brochure and Map

Free and Self-guided

The tour is free and self-guided. Professionally printed brochures containing the studio descriptions and the tour map are available at all studios, the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, the Rockport Information Booth on Rte 127, and many other public venues; meanwhile, at home you can download and print the PDF to plan your trip. Print it out, mark it up, or just keep it on your portable device (smartphone, tablet,…) for travel. ¬†As you approach each artisan studio on the road a bright, magenta Studio Tour banner will mark the studio location.

Printing Tips

When printing the PDF, verify that you select the option to fit the document to the printed page, typically called “Fit to page” or “Scale to fit”. Select paper size “US Letter” (8.5 by 11 inches). Optionally, select the pages you want to print, for example, pages 2 to 5 to skip the cover page.
