Maine Craft Weekend is an annual statewide tour of Maine craft studios, businesses and events. Maine Craft Weekend offers an opportunity for the public to explore the life and work of craft artists and businesses in Maine, and for artists to connect with craft enthusiasts, collectors and visitors behind-the-scenes. This is an educational, community-oriented and family-friendly event for all.
I'll be at the Zwellyn Pottery Studio this Saturday from 10am to 2pm - details below on the entire weekend's events!
