Interview with white oak basket maker Alphonso Jennings with apprentice Michael Steen

Interview with white oak basket maker Alphonso Jennings with apprentice Michael Steen

Date
1994-01-15
Description
One audio cassette. Apprentice Steen agreed to learn from Jennings to select, cut, split, and shape white oak strips, and weave them into baskets: four small trash baskets, one market basket, one Easter basket, one laundry basket, and one cotton basket. For more information on Noble, see S 1644, box 11, folder 26. 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, and then Robert Stone. The program was continued each year through 2004.
