Åarhus Gallery, Åarhus partner Willy Reddick and other Waldo County artists are pleased to be participating in Maine Craft Weekend (MCW), a statewide tour of Maine craft studios, breweries, businesses and events, 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 orientated, family friendly weekend October 11 and 12, 2014. 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!
Other participants in Waldo County include: Marshall Wharf Brewing Co., Mainely Pottery, Lupine Cottage, Mary Trotochaud, David Jacobson, Dawnella Sutton, Jim Crampton, James MacDonald, Andrew’s Brewing Co., Penobscot Bay Brewing Co. Please visit www.MaineCrafts.org to learn about participants and events and use the interactive MCW map to plan your route!
Maine Craft Weekend is produced by The Maine Crafts Association with Event Partner, the Maine Brewer’s Guild, and Organizational Partner, The Maine Department of Economic and Community Development’s Maine Made Program. These statewide organizations have successfully branded and promoted quality Maine Craft, Maine products, and craft beer, respectively; Maine Craft Weekend invites the public into these dynamic studios and businesses to see the magic behind the products they produce.
