Students from the sewing, dying and stitching class visited the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art to look at fabrics and textiles from different time periods and cultures April 10.

Senior Ana Ryan went on the trip for the class and saw the different clothing styles. The class visited the American,  Indian, the French and the Japanese clothing exhibits.

“I was really impressed by this one robe in the Native American exhibit,” Ryan said. “I was impressed by all the details they put into it.”

Sophomore Genesis Jeffries also went on the trip and remarked about seeing the cultures in the clothing.

“We walked around and looked at fabric from different eras and societies,” Jeffries said. “We went to get a new understanding of how it was made and represented.”

Ryan remembers looking at the Native American clothes and being blown away by all the details and how it was made entirely by hand.

“You can see the passion these people put into their pieces,” Ryan said. “It’s absolutely beautiful.”
