Queer Craft ME
Collaborators: River Nation and Shelby Arnold
Queer Craft ME is an artistic collective leveraging the inherent community building nature of crafts to bring together makers across Maine. QCME offers everyone the ability to learn, hone and sell their crafts. The Collective’s monthly craft workshops and weekly craft nights encourage attendees to learn new skills and dedicate time each week to indulge their creativity. The workshops focus on mediums and types of art, which have a low material/startup cost, allowing anyone who finds their passion in said craft to easily continue. QCME seasonal markets open up new spaces for artists and makers with minimal tabling fees. QCME seeks to help everyone find their artistic outlet and turn it into a fiscally self-sustaining endeavor, if they so wish. QCME is the recipient of a Research & Development Grant.
