About PenFelt Studio


PenFelt Studio is LeBrie Rich’s well-equipped workspace nestled
into the Sunnyside neighborhood of Portland, Oregon.

What to expect from PenFelt Studio Workshops:

  • My workspace is set up for felting! Show up without any preparation. Leave without cleaning up.

  • All materials for your in-class project are provided. The only thing you need to bring to class is your fun self. You will have the option to buy more supplies at the end of class if you want to keep felting.

  • Workshops are intimate (usually 4-10 students), so you will get lots of one-on-one help.

  • The street address of the studio is provided upon registration.

Private Classes at PenFelt Studio

In addition to scheduled workshops open to the public, I teach private workshops for groups of friends and/or co-workers. I have taught birthday parties for ages 7 - 70, girl scout troupes, team building workshops for corporate clients and private lessons.

Accessible Pricing

I can offer sliding scale pricing for artists, art workers, POCs and low-income people if the cost prohibits your participation. Contact me for more details.


In 2019 I am holding quarterly workshops to benefit 350.org. This is my response to the Trump administration's dismantling of the EPA, and an attempt to address the root causes of the climate crisis . So far this year I have raised $567. Sign up for my mailing list to be notified about the next benefit class.


  • Cancellations 7 or more days before the workshop: No charge.

  • Cancellations 7 - 2 days prior to workshop: Cancellation fee of 50% of the tuition.

    If there is a wait list for the class and I can fill your place, I will waive the cancellation fee.

  • Cancellations 48 hours or less prior to workshop: I cannot issue a refund if you cancel 48 hours or less prior to a workshop. At this point, I have purchased materials for the class and am counting on your attendance. If you have to cancel you’re welcome to send a friend in your place.

If there is a wait list for your particular class and I can cover your place, I will waive the cancellation fee.
If you have not paid ahead of time for the workshop, I will invoice you for the cancellation fee.
