Throughout the season, a variety of artisans come to work at the Museum to bring to life the craft and handiwork of bygone eras in Maine. Visitors have the opportunity to observe artists as they work, to touch instruments, tools, and objects—and to ask questions.
Maine artists working with a traditional medium like glass, fiber, wood or stone as well as trades like blacksmith and cooper will once again come to life in the context of the Village. The open-air programs will be ongoing throughout the day and will allow visitors of all ages to watch the artists work and perhaps make a purchase directly from the artisan.
For more information see the page on each of our 2016 Artisans-In-Residence:
Artisans interested in learning more about participating in the program can contact Kathy Goldner, Director of Education & Curator.
