Our pottery studios are fully equipped for both hand building and wheel throwing.  We offer monthly memberships for those wishing to be more involved than during one of our weekly classes or intensive workshops.  We offer classes for the complete beginner to the advanced potter wishing to expand their knowledge of clay.

Do you have a piece of furniture that could use some refreshing?  Join us in our studios for one and two day workshops to transform everything furniture into something new and fresh for your house or office.  After much trial and error, we have found that Jolie Home paints are our favorite and use these in our workshops.

Health and safety are important to Mississippi School of Folk Arts.

At this time, we require masks for all those participating in workshops, classes and other studio events.  We have made investments in equipment to help create a safe healthy environment to allow for adequate social distancing during classes.  We ask that those who have recently been exposed to Covid-19 or who are not feeling healthy to not participate in our workshops and events.  We will work with you in order to provide the safest environment for our students, instructors, volunteers and administrative workers.  Thank you for following this protocol.

Photos above with maskless students were taken prior to March of 2020.
