Our Shabbat Table – Felt wall mural

During Term 3, 2018 I was invited to create a felt wall mural celebrating ‘Our Shabbat Table’. The mural was installed in the main stairwell to create a welcoming space.

Families were invited to share in written or visual form what FKI and being Jewish means to them. From this inspiration, I designed the 6 images to be reproduced in felt – some as large as 3.5 x 2.5 metres in size.

The project engaged the whole school community:

  • the project was launched on Grandparents Day;

  • Kinder students made felt leaves for the Tree of Life;

  • all remaining panels were made by Year 1 & 2 students in groups;

  • staff were integral and hands on in all aspects.
