The first weekend in May is Pottery Weekend in Maine! Clay studios all over Maine open their doors to the public on May 4th & 5th. The Maine Pottery Tour offers demonstrations and giveaways, a chance to meet the artists, shop for handmade pottery, and get a glimpse into life as a potter in Maine. You can even try the wheel yourself at some locations or paint a plate of your own. This year the Maine Pottery Tour has 37 participating studios, from Kittery to Swanville to Phillips.
