About Melanie Siegel
I am a textile artist, creator and art educator. I have been studying the fascinating world of textile making, weaving, felt making and stitchery, and have had the honour of sharing my knowledge with students. It has always been my calling to be an exploratory artist. I am a graduate from the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, and my work is now in international exhibitions.
About The Book
The Book, a story for the ages. I have created an oversized story book to fill with stories, pictures, and record the years events. The materials used in this piece are a combination of textile fragments, felted, stitched, reused, recycled. The scale of the book is large, a way to elevate the stories of the year. The processes of textile creation, stitching and re composing is the act of meditation and reflecting, rejuvinating and healing.
