Amanda Mitchell of Delany Arts, and Brooke Hoerner of AP Curiosities invite you to Maine Craft Weekend at Delany Arts Studio. Open Studio hours are on Saturday, October 5th, from 10am - 4pm, and on Sunday, October 6th, from 11am - 3pm. Please use public parking on Main Street.
Visit Delany Arts and check out the beautiful transformation of Winslow Station, Yarmouth's historic firehouse into a working studio with space for workshops, classes, and Amanda Mitchell's personal art studio. Amanda and Brooke will be doing demonstrations (wheel throwing, hand building, and surface design technique), as well as selling work, including functional and sculptural pottery, ceramic and copper jewelry, and 2D artwork. If weather permits the garage studio door will be open!
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; free listings are available to members of the Maine Crafts Association, Maine Made, and Open Studio Maine.
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.
