Welcome to Tear Cap Workshops! We are a non-profit organization dedicated to unleashing creativity in Hiram, Maine.
Craft – Community – Inspiration
Located in Hiram, Maine at the site of a former sawmill, Tear Cap Workshops is committed to promoting and enriching hands-on learning opportunities. We have an emerging hands-on workshop schedule and aesthetic, affordable, workshop spaces to rent for established artisans.
The former sawmill facility consists of 19 acres and 11 buildings. We lease aesthetic and affordable workshop space, and we’re just beginning to offer hands-on educational classes in traditional skills. We plan to offer classes in woodworking, stonewall building, blacksmithing, pottery, gardening, and other hands-on craft based on local, natural materials in the near future.
Our goal is to make good use of a former sawmill campus with craft, industry, and education. We hope to offer a wealth of opportunities for anyone who wants to learn a new skill, or needs the space to work on a creative project or business.
New Space Available!
Are you interested in becoming part of this community? We have a new space available that would be perfect for a small creative office or studio. Situated in its own 24 x 12 foot building, this sunny space is heated and cooled with a mini-split heat pump. Wireless internet and plenty of parking.
This space would be ideal for a visual artist, photographer, or someone who does jewelry making, fiber arts or sewing. (This space is just for studio use, not for living in.) We’re looking for a community-oriented craftsperson or artist. Contact us with any questions — we look forward to hearing from you!
