Florette Semigran making prayer shawls (tallitot)

Florette Semigran making prayer shawls (tallitot)

Date
1985-08-15
Description
Four color slides. Images of Semigran's hand woven Jewish prayer shawls. Jewish tradition is to wear fringes on the corners of four-cornered garments. Since this is no longer a commonly worn type of garment, it is customary to wear a Tallit, a prayer shawl, during morning services. A Tallit can be made from any material and can be any color. The Dade Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1986 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalas, Nancy Nusz and Laurie Sommers in order to identify folk arts and folk artists for the special folklife area at the 34th Annual Florida Folk Festival. The traditions are mainly Haitian, Jamaican, Mexican, Bahamian, Cuban and Jewish and cover a wide range of skills and art forms.

Date

Description
171 color slides. These images document the process of making a traditional Seminole palmetto basket. The images start with bower gathering palm fronds, and concludes with the finished basket. The images were created for the Florida Folklife Program's Seminole Slide and Tape Project, a program sponsored by the American Express Company in 1982-1983 to create two educational slide/tape programs for use by schools, community groups, and other educational outlets. One program dealt with sweetgrass basket making; the other on traditional Seminole patchwork. Recordings of the finished program tapes can be found in S 1576, Box 10. Teacher guides, program scripts, and documentation of the project can be found in S 1595, Box 1.
