Workshops at Shaker Village

The Shakers are among the best-known craftspeople in American history; their legacy includes fine examples of woodworking, textile arts, basket making, metal work, music, gardening, cooking, and more. Today, the Sabbathday Lake Shakers, America’s only active Shaker Community, are the stewards of this heritage. They gladly welcome visitors to Shaker Village to experience their traditions.

We are pleased to feature Shaker-inspired workshops by some of Maine’s best-known instructors and artists.

Pre-registration is required for all workshop classes. Register online or email
