Portland Fine Craft Show 2018

And coming up on August 25th, from 9-4pm, it’s the Fourth Annual Portland Fine Craft Show, taking place on Congress Street between High and State Streets in Portland, Maine. This exciting show, produced by the Maine Crafts Association, features over 100 juried exhibitors from Maine and New England exhibiting fine craft in the following media categories: baskets, ceramics, fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper, stone and wood, as well as an outreach booth exhibiting the work of international artists new to Maine, booths featuring New England arts organizations, schools and guilds by special invitation, live music and food trucks in Longfellow Square. You can find Willy Wires in booth #73, in the same location as last year, near Local Sprouts, a terrific cooperatively owned cafe and bakery. Wes, my handsome assistant for this show, had a terrific breakfast there last year before the show got rolling. If your looking for something fun to do that weekend, this could be it. Please make sure to stop by and say hello.
