November & December Berkeley Artisans Holiday Open Studios Free. This self-guided tour allows participants to meet the artists in their studios and to purchase quality gifts. My personal favorite locations are:

●Berkeley Potters Guild 731 Jones St./Fourth St. In this beehive of studios and sales displays, you’ll find everything ceramic, from attractive bowls and coffee cup to colorful tree ornaments to unusual jewelry.
●Sawtooth Building 930 Dwight Way/8th St. Named for its zig-zag roofline, this sprawling building holds a warren of more than artist 50 studios.
