Maine’s City of Ships offers a unique perspective on Maine Craft Weekend, with several maker demonstrations honing crafts straight out of our maritime history. Come learn how Rigger’s are preparing Maine’s First Ship, a replica of the 1607 ship built by the first colonists. Watch woodworking artists bring sea life out through carving local hardwoods.  Taste seasonal brews at Bath Brewing Company, where “Sea Trial” is the aptly named pale ale that reflects our history with Bath Iron Works. Painters, Gardeners, children’s art opportunities, and more are available throughout this beautiful fall weekend in downtown Bath.
