2021 Apprenticeship Program Virtual Showcase - Part 1

*This is a virtual event that streamed on the Texas Folklife Facebook Page. Watch it anytime on YouTube*

This is the first event in a two-part series.


Rooted in intensive instruction, apprenticeships are often a private matter between mentor and apprentice. This two-part virtual event provides a window into the collaboration of the 2021 Apprenticeship Program artist teams, as participants showcase the skills and techniques, lessons and experiences, stories and memories they gained while fostering their respective traditions. 


Both parts will stream live on Texas Folklife’s Facebook page at 6 PM CDT on 8/17 and 8/24 respectively.
