Attendees will experience a gallery-like show in an intimate setting overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. While shopping and visiting with some of Maine’s most accomplished craftspeople, attendees can learn about both time-honored and modern techniques in handcraft. Textile artist, Amelia Poole of Brooksville is an artist raised by scientists and enjoys explaining the steps required to achieve her distinctive eco-printed textiles, while Paige Carter of Cape Elizabeth has an interesting history to share behind her hand-painted floorcloths – a craft dating back to the 18th century.
