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.
