Maine Craft Weekend 2018

October 13 - October 14

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Maine Craft Weekend (MCW), a statewide tour of Maine craft studios, breweries and businesses, is an opportunity for the public to explore the life and work of craft artists and craft brewers in Maine. MCW is a public, educational, community oriented, family friendly weekend.

MCW is scheduled in conjunction with American Craft Week, a nationwide event promoting craft events each October. Modeled after Maine Maple Sunday and New Hampshire Open Doors (produced by the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen), this self-guided tour features participants all over the state who are not regularly open to the public or who have planned special MCW events and demonstrations at their locations. Plan a route to include a pottery wheel lesson and a glass blowing demonstration in the morning, swing by a brew pub for lunch, wrap up the day perusing a craft show and start all over again on Sunday!

Maine Craft Weekend is produced by The Maine Crafts Association in partnership with Maine Made.

Examples of participating sites include individual potters’ home studios, craft galleries, glass blowing studios, outdoor installation sites, non-profit craft organizations, craft-based schools, craft beer breweries and craft beer brewery-restaurants. Events vary by type of location and include open studios, demonstrations, tastings, exhibitions, sales, tours, kids’ projects and other creative and interactive activities.

Craft artists, retailers, breweries and other related businesses and events interested in being included on the map and in our marketing should contact the MCA.
