How to get to Strawbale Studio

__Notice: The Strawbale Studio is located at a private residence. You must receive permission and be scheduled to visit. Thanks for respecting this. __

Map Quest does NOT give good guidance to the Strawbale Studio, so I recommend the directions below, or Rand McNally.

  • Studio Address: 2691 Noble Rd. Oxford, MI 48370.  Links to maps, and directions from different locations, below.
  • Phone at site: 248 628 1887. Cell phone – which might NOT have reception at the site: 248 496 4088. It is good to leave messages on both. Email:ecoartdb@gmail.com

Below are two links for maps to the Strawbale Studio. Rand McNally is best.

Below are additional details that will be helpful when you get close to the studio. DO NOT use Mapquest or yahoo map. They are inaccurate.
