“Our resident working artisans at the Ozark Folk Center State Park begin with talent and then have the opportunity to practice their crafts until they achieve mastery,” said Jeanette Larson, Craft Director at the Ozark Folk Center State Park. “Part of our mission at the park is to teach these crafts and perpetuate the tradition of fine Ozark craftsmanship. Our classes offer everyone a chance to learn these crafts hands-on, from a skilled crafts person and teacher.”
These classes in traditional and contemporary crafts are for students 16 and up. Registration is available now. Visit the web site at www.OzarkFolkCenter.com for a complete list of classes, registration deadlines and class fees, or call 870-269-3851 for more information.

The mission of Ozark Folk Center State Park is to perpetuate, present and promote the Ozark way of life in an educational and enjoyable manner; through craft demonstrations, musical programs, the Heritage Herb Garden, workshops and other special events.
