The Traditional Sweetgrass Basket Making and Ukrainian Egg Decorating Workshop

The Traditional Sweetgrass Basket Making and Ukrainian Egg Decorating Workshop

Date
1989-03-11
Description
Thirty-five slides. Images from 1989 spring folk workshop, arranged by Florida folklorist Fant and held at the Stephen Foster Center. The instructors were Garrison and Gurley. Garrison grew up in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, but lived in Jacksonville from the 1960s on. She learned sweetgrass basket making, a New World adaptation of an Old World skill, at age three from her family in South Carolina. She made her basket by coiling pine needles and sweetgrass, then sewing them with palmetto frond strips, using a spoon (called a bone) to help bind the strips through. Gurley was born in a village in the Ukraine, where she learned traditional egg decorating (pysanky). Her family emigrated to the US just after World War II, and moved to Florida in 1973 (first White Springs, later St. Petersburg). Using a stylus called a kystka, she draws the designs with wax, then dips the egg into various paints for the many colors used.

Pysanky artist Ola Kryway with apprentice Mary Martin

Pysanky artist Ola Kryway with apprentice Mary Martin

Date
1981-05-25
Description
Three proof sheets (plus ngatives) with 86 images; 33 color slides. Images taken at Kryway's home, and include Martin and Kryway decorating eggs, as well as examples of finished pysanky eggs. Pysanky (East European egg decration)is created when patterns are drawn on eggs with wax, which then protects the covered areas from the dye that is applied. By repeating this process with different colors of dye, a multi-colored pattern is built up. Apprentice Martin was funded to learn from pysanky artist Kryway Ukrainian egg decorating, including preparing/selecting eggs, drawing design, dyeing, and the meaning of designs. They used both geese and chicken eggs. For more information of Kryway and Martin, see S 1644, box 11, folder 28. 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 2004.
