The Lincoln County 4-H Summer Ventures programs for youth for three days worked on “Recycled Artire” which utilizes textiles to create pieces of art. The participants learned entrepreneurship as well as decision making skills. Day one consisted of turning t-shirt strips into circular rugs, using a hula hoop as the frame. The following day youth created textile murals. They prepared a sketch of their planned theme and began layering fabric, lace, ribbons, buttons and more until they reached their ultimate goal. Day three was a gift from the heart. Dog or cat beds were created from used sweaters.
