Fiber College of Maine: September 2-10
For this year’s Fiber College, we’re excited to offer a choice of six, intensive four-day workshops that will run simultaneously from Thursday through Sunday, the week after Labor Day at the award-winning Searsport Shores Ocean Campground and art facility in Mid-Coast Maine. Your chosen workshop will consist of at least 18 hours of personalized instruction that will be the core of a unique retreat experience. You'll be sharing your meals and campfires with all of our talented teachers and your fellow makers. There will be plenty of time to work or daydream in the garden and on our beach. This is your time to renew your creative energy, confidence, and passion, carrying it with you long after we wave goodbye.
Strung Together: Old Time & Bluegrass Campout Festival, September 15-17
The OT & Bluegrass Jam weekend begins Friday afternoon with an OT
Jam and banjo workshop followed by our world famous Strung Together wood fired pizza bar and concert. The jams will take place in different areas in the park but close enough to give all participants easy access to both jam circles.
This year we are jamming around the grounds under tents, porches, trees and other canopies. Designated spaces will be laid out for each style of music, with unlimited spots to hold you own jam.
