The Michael Good Design Studio, 325 Commercial St./Route 1, is participating in the statewide tour of Maine craft studios, known as Maine Craft Weekend, slated for Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 1 and 2.  The event is free and open to the public, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.

Maine Craft Weekend promotes statewide, self-guided tours of Maine craft studios. The public is invited to get to know the life and work of iconic artist Michael Good by visiting his design studio, where his internationally renowned jewelry and sculpture have been created for 40 years. In the adjacent Michael Good Gallery Annex, there will be a demonstration of wool spinning and yarn making by Lori Schafer of Rockland’s WalkingWoolStudio.

“What’s more, our recently re-opened Annex exhibition spaces — launched in collaboration with PicassoWhat — will offer MCW craft enthusiasts an opportunity to see additional fine craft in glass, ceramic, wood, textiles, and metal for the home, the body and gift-giving,” said Avi Good, manager of Michael Good Gallery.

At the Michael Good Gallery Annex, Maine Craft Weekend visitors will see jewelry and sculpture by Michael Good, wood veneer boxes John Russell, ceramic tableware by Michael Lambert, glassware by Crusader Glass Studio, Buginga and cherry wood torchieres by Renfort Lamps, ceramic vessels by Maya Machin, steel jewelry by Atelier Verstraeten, fiber art by WalkingWoolStudio, porcelain by Russell Spillman, Bolga baskets of Ghana, gold and sapphire jewelry by Ted Hendricks and more.

Parking is available on site, in front and at the back of the Annex. For more information about Michael Good Studio and the Michael Good Gallery Annex, visit; email; or call 236-2580.
