MCA Workshop Series:
The MCA Workshop Series connects Maine Craft Artists with one another and with other resources within our community. The series offers opportunities to learn something new, engage with other artists and, in for some workshops, spend time in a peer’s workspace.
Based on a year of trial and error, we have changed our workshop structure from the 2018 Member to Member Workshop Series, to simply facilitating ongoing workshops on a variety of topics in different locations. This includes being open to non member teachers and students.
MCA members and non-members are invited to offer workshops in their studios, places of business or in our facilities. Workshops can take the form of lectures, seminars, hands on skill building, make-and-takes or other structures and concepts.
MCA Workshops access and share resources found right here among us, to connect in beautiful, functional or wild workspaces and offer a learning experience in a serious but informal way. We’re grateful for our talented and passionate community of members who are eager to share their skills and a bit of their time! In return for their teaching, instructors benefit from grass roots story-telling, connecting with Maine craft artists interested in their work, fine tuning a technique and gaining confidence in teaching. Workshop participants benefit by learning something new, trying a new technique, networking, problem solving and branching out of their studio practice for an afternoon.
Workshop tuition and instructor compensation change with each workshop and include member and non-member rates. Each instructor works with our staff to set these amounts.
