Richland Academy was delighted to be selected by local felting artist, Melanie Siegel, to participate in her Intergenerational Felting Extravaganza, which is supported by Richmond Hill’s Mayor’s Endowment Fund for the Arts. A group of Richland students, as well as some parents, have been working collaboratively with Ms. Siegel and Mrs. Sherman to create felting art pieces which are inspired by the natural landscape.
The beauty of the raw wool and the fascinating process of creating felt have captivated our students. We look forward to showcasing the finished pieces as part of this exciting local arts initiative, which includes a group of local High School students as well as local Seniors.
Many students and parents were captivated by the beauty of the felting process, and were interested in sourcing felting materials on their own. Here is a supplier for reference:
