Watershed Receives Grants to Support Education Initiatives and Facility Improvements

handsonwheelWatershed is the proud recipient of a three-year award from the Belvedere Traditional Handcrafts Fund of the Maine Community Foundation. Grant funds are supporting outreach and marketing efforts, especially for local events that connect ceramics with locally sourced food and our neighboring farms. Funds are also supporting new educational programs for K-12 art educators interested in expanding their own ceramic practice and opportunities for their students.  This includes scholarships to Watershed’s 1-week Summer Residency session in 2016 for K-12 Art Teachers.

The Davis Family Foundation has supported a number of important facility improvement projects at Watershed in recent years. In September, Watershed was awarded a new grant for $14,600 to complete an updated property survey and engineering analysis of our campus that will help with the planning process for new studio and community buildings.

We are grateful for this important foundation support and look forward to sharing the results of these initiatives in the months to come.



Welcome to the Watershed Blog

Welcome to Watershed’s new blog! We’ll use this space to keep you up-to-date on Watershed-related news and events. The 2016 season holds great promise both in and out of the studio and we look forward to sharing developments in the months to come.

Right now, the cabins and factory are empty and a quiet stillness blankets the campus as leaves fall from the trees. It’s hard to believe that just a couple of months ago the studio was bustling with activity and we were wearing shorts and relaxing on the lawn.  Here are a few photos from the summer to reminder you of warmer days.  We hope to see you here next summer!
