Thirteen color slides. Images of Corky Richards making oyster tongs. He also worked as a cabinetmaker. More images may be found in S 1592, box 4, folder 3.

The three main researchers were Nancy Nusz, Merri Belland, and project director David Taylor. Additional information on the project can be found in Taylor's project files in S 1716.

Description
Thirty color slides. Rodney served as Corky's apprentice between 1986 and 1987. 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, who was later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.
