Our Resident program will be our premier offering—with content & duration tuned to individual skill sets, experience and aspirations. Our Artisan Residency will draw people from all over the world with widely varied interest and experience in a broad spectrum of ceramic media applications. This program will provide unique opportunities to creatively explore ceramic craft processes complementarily supported by non-traditional processes. The opportunity to leverage our exceptionally wide tool and process capacity base, in the peaceful and beautiful setting of coastal Maine has potent potential.
Over several decades, Maine Kiln Works has had numerous Apprentices, all of whom enjoyed “not as expected” but wonderfully productive experiences. Unfortunately tenure was limited due to lack of funding or visa limitations. Sharing skills with these enthusiastic artisans has created the best memories of times past at the Kiln Works. We place high priority on establishing Partnerships which will allow us to support Artisan Residency programs as an ongoing reality.
