About Us

Maine Craft Portland opened in July 2018 and exhibits and sells the work of over 130 MCA member craft artists.


The Maine Charitable Mechanic Association was founded in 1815 as a social organization that promoted and supported the skilled trades – blacksmiths, coopers, carpenters, and more – and their practitioners. Its original members were master craftspeople and entrepreneurs and their apprentices. Today MCMA works to connect that history to the modern makers movement by providing social support and a place for knowledge sharing, particularly from the older generation to the younger generation.
