Camp Ketcha and the Maine Crafts Guild are co-sponsors of the “Scarborough Fine Crafts Show” taking place Sat., Sept 17 from 10 am to 5 pm & Sunday, September 18 from 10 am to 4 pm at Camp Ketcha, 336 Black Point Rd. Scarborough
Take an opportunity to treat yourself during these last beautiful days of summer: Come to lovely Camp Ketcha on the Scarborough shoreline and meet some of Maine’s finest professional craftspeople who create tomorrow’s heirlooms today. Here you will find woodworkers who choose their trees with care, who design and fashion their pieces from raw materials to finished furniture, bowls and utensils. You’ll meet potters who mix their own clays and glazes, who fire colorfully carved pieces or earth-toned wood-fired work. Meet jewelers who work with precious metals and gems, glass, bone and stone; fiber artists who create natural fiber clothing, quilts, and wall pieces. Fine basketry, blown glass, bookbinding, and more… all the time-honored crafts are here, and all are made locally, made by hand, and made to last.
Admission is $5 and children admitted free. Proceeds benefit Camp Ketcha and the Maine Crafts Guild. FMI: Jennifer Nielsen, Show coordinator, 207 799.3460 or visit www.mainecraftsguild.com
