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.
UPDATE: We are slowly re-opening the Rent-a-Bench program with one-at-time (or family/household groups.)
We will be open Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9 – 5 for one-at-a-time use, and by appointment on other days.
You can reserve your spot online (for Wednesdays and Thursdays) or if you’d like to make an appointment, please contact us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling our office at 207-625-3396.
A big thank you to our Sponsors whose support helps make Tear Cap Workshops’ mission possible!
With additional support from Central Boiler; Hunting, Dearborn Division; and Repose Fire Logs
