Flock craft is now used on furniture, radios, phonographs, jewelry boxes, greeting cards, airplanes and many other things. Flock craft is a significant part of industrial arts education. Industrial arts considers those phases of general education dealing with industry, — its processes, problems, products and procedures. If flock craft is an industrial product, in great demand, used every day about us, and more and more uses in all branches of industry are being discovered every day, then, flock craft should be taught in high school industrial arts courses.

The purpose of the problem is to show how flock craft can be used as a finish in industrial arts. In order to accomplish the purpose of this study, it will be necessary to answer several questions: (1) What is the function of education in a democracy? (2) What is the function of industrial arts in education? (3) What is the art of flock craft? and (4) How Flock Craft can be taught in industrial arts?

For the purpose of this study only grades nine, ten, eleven, and twelve will be considered.
