Experience Arkansas Heritage with Southern Folk Art Crafts!
The Ozark Folk Center Crafts Village has over 20 artisans demonstrating Southern folk art crafts and the everyday skills used by Ozark Mountain people in the 19th and early 20th centuries. These skills have become Arkansas heritage crafts - basket weaving, broom making, blacksmithing, pottery making, knife making, weaving, quilting, wood carving, soap making, dress making, herb gardening, coopering, doll making, candle making, wood turning, and more. Between April and November, the Ozark Folk Center offers visitors a chance to experience these crafts and visit with the people who make their living creating them.
The Village is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on days of operation. Please check our Ozark events for more information on special craft events and festivals throughout our season. Ozark Folk School in March also provides all interested individuals with the opportunity to learn broom making, drawing, candle making or any of the other crafts demonstrated in the Crafts Village from a talented instructor, in a relaxed, non-competitive environment. Design Your Own Workshops are also available at a time that works into your schedule.
