Lacework by Beatrice Berchey

Date
1986-11-26
Description
Seven color slides. Berchey learned to tat (make lace) in Johnston, Pennsylvania from an aunt, who tatted for money. Badly burned when she was four, Berchey was often home-bound, and tatting was an escape. The Florida Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1987 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalis, Steve Fragos, Merri Belland, and Barbara Seitz as preliminary research for a joint folk art between the Florida Folklife Program and the Florida Museum of History. The field researchers focused on those areas previously overlooked by FFP staff. The research focused on identifying folk artists and locating appropriate exhibit objects.

Wood carvers Bill and Dale Cooey

Wood carvers Bill and Dale Cooey

Date
1988
Description
Thirty-nine color slides. Bill Cooey, who has a mix of Scottish and Yuchi Indian ancestry, grew up in the panhandle. There, he learned pocketknife carving from his mother, a descendant of the Yuchi Indians. His nephew Dale Cooey began to learn the craft with the Apprenticeship program in 1988. For more on Bill Cooey, see S 1644, box 3, folder 1. 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 2003.
