Program Goals

Program goals of the Maine Crafts Association focus on: marketing opportunities, sales opportunities, business development programs, creative/artistic development programs, public education, networking, and high quality branding. Explore our Programs.


Membership supports the development of professional craft artists through education, exhibition and marketing opportunities. Established and emerging craft artists benefit from the peer networking and informal mentoring that is an important component of all of MCA’s programming. Members are kept apprised of Maine’s lively fine crafts community through MCA’s e-newsletter and are listed in the online directory. Professional members can increase their visibility by adding photos, descriptive text and links to their websites. Other membership categories allow institutions, collectors and enthusiasts to participate in this dynamic community and support the goals of MCA. Become a Member.
