Inspiring Joy by creating authentic experiences worth sharing.

Our mission is to help people experience a real joy in life and welcome them into our community of passionate crafters, artists, makers, storytellers, historians, and so on. We want to inspire and encourage people to try something new by stopping to dive into the past.

 

We are striving to inspire a new generation Folk Art & Folklife champions by:

 

  • developing encouraging educational experiences
  • preserving the stories and lives of the past
  • and promoting all the works and labors of this great community.

A Family Tradition.

 

We believe that traditions begin with the family, the kind of family that doesn’t care if you are related by blood, marriage, or dear friendship. At the heart of the Foltz Folklife Foundation is a tradition of this kind of family.

 

The Foltz Pottery family extends through the generations of people who have come to the Foltz Pottery Shop to spend time with old friends, out-buy rival collectors, see the latest wares while having lunch, or even visit the many cats, dogs, or other barnyard critters. However, at the heart of it, are the two people we all love the most, Ned & Gwen Foltz.

 

Remembering Gwen Foltz

Gwen & Ned Foltz are our inspiration for Art & Life. Joy & Hospitality. We are saddened to share that Gwen passed from us on Monday, July 10, 2017. She will be greatly miss, but her love for her family and friends will never be forgotten.
