Vending Here and There
About the Designer
Since childhood, Beth has been a maker and creator. In 2011 she was exposed to a simple felting technique and dove headlong into this ancient and ever evolving textile art form. She crafts one-of-a-kind pieces utilizing wet and “nuno” felting processes. Wool, yarn, silk and other fibers are transformed into functional and wearable art. Scarves, hats, slippers, vests, purses and decorative vessels are just a handful of items that she produces. She enjoys experimenting with hand dyeing and hunting thrift stores for garments to be repurposed. Locally sourced materials are utilized whenever possible. She offers classes and workshops at her home studio as well as community maker spaces.
Welcome to Fibergarten Studio, home of Beth Leydon, designer and felter. Here, through the magic of soapy water and manual agitation, one of a kind wearable art and accesories are created.
