Excellence in Fine Crafts since 1975
The Maine Crafts Guild is dedicated to excellence in craft. We promote understanding and appreciation for quality craftsmanship as an art form and a way of life to the people of Maine and our many visitors. We represent the finest Maine artisans, providing high quality promotional and marketing opportunities for our professional members through our web presence, our highly regarded craft shows, and our outreach programs.
Here you will find works of the heart, mind, and hand—all from an extraordinary group of craftspeople who are dedicated to their chosen craft. The artisans of the Guild carry on the time-honored traditions of craftsmanship; their commitment to excellence and the skill in their hands creates beautiful work that enriches all our lives.
As you browse our member pages, you will find the work of professional artisans whose craft transcends the ordinary; whose dedication, skill and vision is evident in the spirit and joy of their work. Visit the studios, farms, galleries, and shops where our members’ handcrafted objects of lasting value await your discovery.
As of the end of 2019, we have fully merged with the Maine Crafts Association. The combined organizations will continue to serve its professional members and be run by and for them. Dedicated to excellence in craftsmanship, the merged organization will promote the career development of members by operating retail shows, offering mentorship to emerging young craft artists, advertising throughout New England, and initiating other useful projects. The Maine Crafts Association will also continue to serve as a liaison between its membership and other cultural and educational organizations throughout the state.
The shows have been and will be renowned for their consistent high quality; a standard achieved through a comprehensive jury system for professional membership.
