Please note: Watershed’s campus is closed to the public in 2021. For the health and safety of our artists-in-residence, we kindly request that our community enjoy this video of the new studio rather than visiting in person. We look forward to welcoming you to campus as soon as we can. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding! 

Enrich your life and your art by joining in a variety of Watershed’s year-round programs and activities.

Annual Community Events

Area residents and visitors in midcoast Maine look forward to Watershed’s signature annual events—Salad Days and the Soup Bowl Supper.

  • Salad Days – Mark your calendar! Each year, Watershed hosts our summer celebration feast featuring handmade plates, Salad Days, on the second Saturday in July. Each guest selects a hand-crafted earthenware plate (to take home) and can load it up with an array of salads, breads, and desserts—many sourced locally and prepared by Watershed’s cooks and area restaurants. In addition to the festive meal, there’s a pottery sale and exhibition, live music and artist demos. Learn more.
  • Soup Bowl Supper – Celebrate spring’s arrival at Watershed’s annual Soup Bowl Supper, hosted in partnership with the Boothbay Harbor Rotary. The community dinner features handmade ceramic bowls, and all-you-can-eat chowder, soup, salads, breads and desserts. Funds raised support the local emergency fuel fund and Watershed’s community education programs. Learn more.
