LEWISTON — L/A Arts’ Place for Makers will kick off its discussion and networking sessions, with Mike Rancourt of Rancourt & Co. Shoecrafters, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., on March 29.

Discussion topics include production scaling, workforce development, and opportunities in Lewiston-Auburn. Refreshments will be served.

The Place for Makers series focuses on introducing a new generation of artisans to L-A.
