Mississippi School of Folk Arts is taking things slowly these days, being cautious and keeping healthy.
We are carefully opening back up with classes. Beginning in June, we are offering limited student opportunities to learn hands on with skilled instructors. Please look at our course listings for the latest ways you can learn something new.
We are cleaning our studios regularly, masks are mandatory for all on our campuses, extra space is being allotted for each student during classes. We hope these things will help slow the spread of Covid-19 through our community.
Find us in downtown Natchez!
Our main campus is located across from the Natchez Convention Center at 209 Franklin Street and our Pottery Studio is located on the bluff at 101 Clifton Avenue
Stop by our fabulous main campus to see our studio classrooms. We have two large, light filled spaces dedicated to creative learning. 209 Franklin St has been a creative location in Natchez for two decades, housing the pottery studios of Conner Burns. The new Burns Pottery is currently being constructed on the property, adding to the overall creative atmosphere on Franklin Street. Our pottery studio and private artist studios are located at 101 Clifton Ave along the Mississippi River. To inquire about renting one of these incredible studios, please contact us.
