registration & payment

Maine Coast Traditional Arts Workshop    


If you wish to be put on a wait list for any class that is full, let me know.  

For 2023 we are holding 2 day and 5 day classes:

   2 day class fee:  $425

   5 day class fee:  $1100

   Some classes will have a materials fee as described in the class description.  

   2 day classes require full payment to hold your spot.  5 day classes require a $500 deposit to hold your spot.  

We need a minimum of 6 students to conduct  a class.  If we do not reach 6 students the class will most likely be cancelled.


  Please pay by check.   We have abandoned other payment schemes due to the increasingly high % taken out by these companies, as well as frustrating technical problems and fees.  We can accept PayPal payments if you are willing to pay their processing fees.

  A full refund will be granted if the class is cancelled for any reason.

Covid:  We plan to abide by state guidelines re. Covid.  As of May 20, 2021, Gov. Mills has updated Maine's COVID-19 policies, including lifting masking requirements in indoor spaces, except in child care settings, health care settings, on public transportation and in businesses that choose to set their own masking guidelines.  The shop is a small one, so our advice is for anyone who feels they are at high risk is not comfortable in a small shop setting may prefer to wait or forgo the class.
