Date
1992-01
Description
79 color slides. Images of Dellis with apprentice Maynard in his workshop. Dellis was a long-time leather worker originally born and trained in leather carver in Texas. He made belts, boots, saddles, and other leather carvings. Maynard was funded to learn to carve leather including design, layout, cutting, beveling, dying, painting, lacing and preserving. To complete her training, she had to complete three pieces. More images of the two can be found in S1577, volume 68. For more information on Dellis and Maynard, see S 1644, box 11, 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, and then Robert Stone. The program was continued each year through 2004.
