Maine Craft Weekend (MCW), a statewide tour of Maine craft studios, businesses and events, is an opportunity for the public to explore the life and work of craft artists in Maine. MCW is a public, educational, community orientated, family friendly weekend October 14 & 15, 2017. MCW is scheduled in conjunction with American Craft Week, a nationwide event promoting craft events each October. Modeled after Maine Maple Sunday and Buy Local Saturday, 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!
