Students explore college, textiles through Upward Bound

Thirteen high school students, following directions from visiting lecturer Camille Hawbaker, laid out pieces of hand-dyed fabric in a Textiles, Merchandising, and Fashion Design (TMFD) classroom last week. The students had dyed the fabric themselves, then cut square pieces and pinned and sewed them together to create small art quilts. It’s all part of an Upward Bound summer residential program that brings students to campus for six-week summer sessions to engage them in learning and get them thinking about college.
