Felted Table Runners with Leslie Granbeck

An accomplished beader and teacher for 20+ years, Leslie Granbeck's talents took a new direction when she discovered the technique of turning wool fibers into beads and jewelry. Intrigued by color, texture and always looking for new challenges, her portfolio grew to include the art of feltmaking. "Feltmaking is magical. Imagine turning simple wool fibers into beautiful scarves, purses, slippers, even garments."

Leslie teaches a variety of feltmaking techniques: traditional wet felting, needle felting, nuno felting, and her favorite – three-dimensional seamless felting. Her classes are full of color, creativity and adventure. They also include a free workout as feltmaking is a “physical art”. When not teaching, you’ll find Leslie in her home studio working on new fiber projects.

Leslie has traveled around the globe, is a professional photographer and speaks Spanish.
