Teague Pottery was a local pottery run by a family without professional training. They sold "all types" of pottery at area roadside stands and markets. The final statement on the questionnaire reads "Poor pottery but they can sell all they make. Help not desired." Questionnaires like this one were the raw data for the exploratory study of the Craft Education Project, a joint undertaking by the Southern Highland Handicraft Guild and the Southern Highlanders. Marian Heard was hired to oversee the planning phase that involved visiting artists and determining the needs of the craftworkers. Her results, referred to as "The Heard Report," were published as the "Report of an exploratory study looking toward a craft education project ...." The preliminary project led to an educational program funded by the General Education Board.
