A brochure with map and artists’ information are available at the Whidbey Working Artists website or on ferries going to Whidbey Island and at island visitor centers.
Over its 10-year history, Whidbey Working Artists has sought to inspire and educate budding amateur artists, provide awareness to the public of the skills available locally, and offer opportunities to buy original art directly from the makers in their workplaces.
From encaustic, fiber, glass, jewelry, painting, photography, print, pottery, sculpture to wood and multimedia – it’s all there.
