Melba Granlund has been living and breathing folk traditions since childhood. With a focus on traditional techniques, she has studied many forms of textile handcrafts, receiving both formal and informal instruction in the U.S. as well as in Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Denmark. Her teaching philosophy encompasses not only the techniques, but also the historical and cultural context in which they were developed. Melba strives to instill an appreciation of the beauty and uniqueness of Scandinavian handcraft traditions in her students so these skills and techniques are not lost or forgotten.
