Welcome to Tear Cap Workshops! We are a non-profit organization dedicated to unleashing creativity in Hiram, Maine.
Inspiration – Craft – Community
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 industrial 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.
We have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Open House. We were looking forward to it, but with covid numbers going up in Maine, we hope the community will understand that it just isn’t worth the risk to host a large gathering this year.
We hope to see you for the Open House in 2022! Stay safe until then.
The U.S. CDC is currently recommending people wear face coverings in public indoor settings in Oxford County.
