The Maine Coast Craft School Philosophy:

A useful, every-day item, such as a spoon, bowl or chair,
made by the hands of the person using it or by someone they love,
will bring enduring joy and meaning to ordinary tasks.

Handmade objects, even very simple ones, are ambassadors of inspiration,
artistic expression and resourcefulness in our consumerist culture.

We think there is something deep within us that longs to be using our hands to make beautiful things, and we believe that engaging this elemental “maker” in ourselves could bring about positive and tangible change in our world.
