Pottery classes will continue on Thursday afternoons, and will again be taught by local ceramic artist, David Dahlstedt.  Students learn to throw on the potter’s wheel, or improve techniques that they already possess.  Clay is available for purchase at cost to students, and completed work can be fired in the Craft School’s pottery kiln.  Pottery classes meet at the Craft School’s main studio at 110 East Main Street.  Classes resume January 2, and will meet from 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Tuition for the class will be $275.00, plus materials fees according to student use of clay and glazes.  Scholarships for tuition are available to financially qualifying students.  In addition, the Craft School offers gift certificates, which can be applied to tuition costs.  Give the gift of an Arkansas Craft Schoolclass to a favorite someone on your holiday gift-giving list!  Class registration forms, scholarship applications and further information on these and other class offerings of the Arkansas Craft School may be found on the website:  Students may also sign up for classes by calling Terri Van Orman at (870) 269-8397.
