Description
Two audio cassettes. Parpard grew up in Heidelburg, Germany, where she learned traditional German embroidery from her mother and grandmother. In the interview, Parpard discusses learning embroidery and knitting from her mother and grandmother; types of stitching; items made (dolls, clothes, slippers); childhood and schooling during 1930s Germany; Polish farm workers; her mother's death; taking care of her grandmother; emigrating to the US in 1937, and to Florida in 1960; dollmaking; writing poetry; and teaching embroidery to her grandchildren. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Palm Beach County was a joint venture between the Palm Beach County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was conducted between 1986 and 1987 by folklorist Jan Rosenberg with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The goal was to impart an appreciation of multi-ethnic traditions and provide a sense of place to the mobile student population. The project focused on the Florida Studies component for fourth grade students. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts, in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist, which included visits by local folk artists. In total, the project involved 15 schools with 779 students.
