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.

Examples of bobbin lace

Date
1988-08
Description
Sixteen color slides. Once called bone lace, bobbin lace is made using bobbins, which were used to store the thread for the lace, act as handles to move the thread, and give weight to the threads to keep tension against the pins. These slides illustrated techniques De Diaz used in her bobbin lace--based on traditional Puerto Rican designs. There are also images of various bobbin types. 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.

Taylor ran it until 1986. In 1988, Gregory Hansen re-initiated it with minor changes.
