Apply Now for 2018 Craft Apprentice Program (CAP) 2018 Application Deadline: Dec 8th

The Maine Craft Association’s Craft Apprentice Program (MaineCAP) offers Maine-based master craft artists and apprentices the opportunity to learn, create, and connect. CAP 2018 will support and fund two master/apprentice pairs.

Applications will be accepted online now through December 8th. Masters and Apprentices apply together, outlining clear apprenticeship goals to be achieved during a seven month apprenticeship in the master’s studio.

Participation in CAP has inspired me to revisit my old sketch book. It has reminded me how short life is, and how important it is to make your own dreams come true. When you spend seven months encouraging a young person to do just that, at some point you scratch your head and say “oh yeah” that IS a good idea!! To think of myself as a master of my craft has been a new concept, one that fills me with pride and a drive to share my experiences in other teaching opportunities as my career continues to unfold.
