At long last, MCA’s beloved Weekend Workshop is back with three and a half days of your choice of seven workshops, held at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle.

The Workshop will be held May 12 to 15. 

Online registration is open.

Students select first and second choices for workshops and accommodations, with the understanding that workshops and accommodations are on a first-come-first-served basis, and waitlists are created as options fill.

At the time of registration, MCA will collect a $100 non-refundable deposit and an image of your vaccination card, your registration will not be considered complete without these items. 

Membership Status: Please note, that after registration you will be billed based upon your MCA membership status. To expedite the process, update your MCA membership if you have not already; otherwise, you will be billed at the cost of a non MCA member.
