Workshops at Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village

Thank you for your interest in taking a workshop at Shaker Village! Please be sure to sign up for our email list at the bottom of this page to be reminded about upcoming workshops and events.

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

We are pleased to feature Shaker-inspired workshops by some of Maine’s best-known instructors and artists. On at least one Saturday each month we have combined multiple workshops and other events in order to satisfy the interests & curiosity of your family and friends. Make a day of it!

Pre-registration is required for all workshop classes. Register online, by phone (207) 926-4597, or by mail.

Please read workshop descriptions carefully. Some classes have special requirements for participants. Class size is limited; register early to avoid disappointment. Full payment is due at time of registration. Registration is accepted in the order in which payment is received by our office. Confirmation of enrollment will be sent by email only. In the event of participant cancellation, the amount of any request for refund will be dependent upon timing of participant cancellation and any expenses incurred by the museum at the time of cancellation. If a workshop is cancelled by the Shaker Museum, participants will receive immediate notification and full refund.
