The Maine Craft Association’s Craft Apprentice Program (CAP) offers Maine-based master craft artists and apprentices the opportunity to learn, create and connect – toward expanding the apprentice’s craft skills and experience.
The 2018 Craft Apprentice Program will conclude with a capstone exhibition on view at Maine Craft Portland, 521 Congress Street, Portland, Maine September 25 – October 26, 2018.
Please join us for the artist reception and refreshments

The exhibition will feature new work created during the seven month apprenticeship by both Masters and Apprentices and be on display in a newly created educational / exhibition space (thanks to funding from the Maine Community Foundation!) within Maine Craft Portland; MCA’s new retail space + resource center in the arts district of Portland, Maine.
