HCC Interior Design Students Gain Hands-on Knowledge in the Field

During the month of December, Interior Design Department Head Alice Vaughan and students traveled to Lake Gaston to Carly and Bruce Dunlevy’s home to view their Christmas decorations. Carly is a natural designer and students picked up many different ideas that will help them during their studies at HCC.

On a separate trip, the group toured Virginia Quilting located in LaCrosse, Va., to view how the company makes a variety of accessories as well as the company’s newly incorporated design department where classes are held for designers to learn how to correctly measure to save money when purchasing materials.
