Interview with tatter Concettina Barone

Date
1985-03-18
Description
Two audio cassettes. Barone, born in Connecticut to Sicilian parents, is a tatter (lace maker). In the interview, she discusses learning needle work in technical schools and from her mother and learning tatting and knitting at a school club; how her mother learned traditional skills; her family's emigration to the US; growing up in a mixed-ethnic neighborhood; learning English; her courtship and marriage in Italy in 1952; moving to Florida; teaching tatting; and her process/method for teaching the skill. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Duval County was a joint venture between the Duval County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was started in 1984 by folklorist David Taylor with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts, in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist, which included visits by local folk artists. Taylor ran it until 1986. In 1988, Gregory Hansen re-initiated it with minor changes.
