Join us for Watershed’s first gallery exhibition since 2019 to celebrate the culmination of the 2021 Craft Apprentice Program (CAP), featuring the work of both the mentors and apprentices. CAP, offered by Maine Crafts Association (MCA) and Maine Arts Commission, is a seven-month intensive in-studio learning opportunity for apprentices who demonstrate a commitment to furthering their craft practice, and mentors who meet standards of excellence and interest in sharing knowledge and experience.
