The Maine Crafts Association, in partnership with the Maine Arts Commission, offers a statewide apprentice program for contemporary craft practitioners. The program serves to celebrate the role of the master/apprentice relationship as a way to generate creative entrepreneurship through the cultural sector. CAP addresses the need in Maine for developing sustainability and resiliency in the craft sector by allowing craft artists to acquire new skills, tools and management habits that help them adapt to the changing environment of craft consumers.

Let’s learn from Maine Craft Association’s experiences with Apprenticeship Programming to develop master/apprentice relationships in Cape Breton.
