Maine Craft Weekend
October 2 + 3, 2021. The annual statewide tour of craft studios, businesses, and events.
Maine Craft Weekend, the annual statewide tour of Maine craft studios, businesses and events. Maine Craft Weekend offers an opprotunity 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, family friendly event for all.
Maine Craft Weekend is produced by the Maine Crafts Association, in partnership with Maine Made and scheduled in conjunction with American Craft Week, a nationwide event promoting craft every October.
Examples of participating sites include private artist studios, glass blowing studios, outdoor installation sites, non-profit craft organizations, craft-based schools, craft beer breweries collaborating with artists, and pop-up shops.
Plan a route to include a pottery wheel lesson and a glass blowing demonstration in the morning, swing by a brewpub for lunch, peruse a craft show in the afternoon, stay in an artist-hosted Airbnb off the beaten path.
