PenFelt Studio provides delightful, original projects and high-quality materials for felters who appreciate consciously-sourced materials, good design and a sense of fun.
Founded in 2004 by artist and felting instructor LeBrie Rich. Known to some as Duchess of Felt, LeBrie is best known for her highly realistic sculptures of food packaging rendered in felt. LeBrie has taught workshops at colleges, art studios, and fiber festivals all over the world—from a small village in the mountains of Japan to New York City. In addition to custom work for private clients, LeBrie has worked with Bent Image Lab, Nike, and a sustainable diaper manufacturer who needed a presentation box made out of felt for Kate Middleton (the Duchess of Cambridge). She lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
