An accomplished feltmaker, 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. For Granbeck, feltmaking is magical, allowing her to turn simple wool fibers into beautiful scarves, purses, slippers, and garments. She teaches a variety of feltmaking techniques, and 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 her in the studio working on new fiber and bead projects. fiberenvy.net
