Hungarian embroiderer Margaret Horvath and apprentice Sylvia Daniels

Date
Description
Three proof sheets with 92 black and white images. Both Daniels and Horvath were born in Budapest, Hungary. Hungarian embroidery dates back for centuries, with four major regions, each with their own distinctive patterns and motfis. Daniels worked as an apprentice to Horvath in 1990-1991. This was Horvath's second time as a master artist(she also participated in 1985). For information on them, see S 1644, box 8, folder 6. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.
