Dyeing to Design--4-H Youth

University of Nebraska Extension personnel from Douglas/Sarpy, Pawnee and Cass Counties teamed up to present a Dyeing to Design workshop for youth on June 21 at the Cass County fairgrounds. 4-H youth learned about discharge dying of fabric using bleach, sunprinting, shaving cream marbling, and how to use computer technology for designing quilts. The program was implemented to provide youth a more in-depth opportunity to learn about textile design. Youth learned design principles, how science is used in the textile industry, as well as careers related to textile arts.  As part of the 4-H program, youth involved in science, engineering, and technology (SET) have the opportunity to apply SET to their 4-H projects, develop related workforce preparedness skills and pursue careers in SET resulting in a workforce that will enable businesses to locate in Nebraska and result in community viability.  Youth involved in exploring career and entrepreneurship opportunities result in future increased wage earners that contribute to the economic stability of their communities. Presenters included Carol Fritz, Diane Mayfield, Cathy Raneri, Nancy Urbanec, and Deb Weitzenkamp.
