Jacobs High School senior Caitlyn Girten, 17, of Algonquin works on a tapestry using alpaca wool during a workshop hosted by fiber artist Susan Waldron at her Elgin alpaca farm Sept. 22. With a grant from the School District 300 Foundation for Educational Excellence, students learned the ancient art of alpaca felting to create one-of-a-kind art tapestries.
