Since 2004, I have taught about 85 handcraft classes a year. I love teaching people felting, and not just because the world needs more wool gnomes.
My felting classes provide me with a way to put you in touch with your playful, generous self. As Fred Moten says: "The only way to protect joy is by practicing it."
I have taught felting 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.
As an artist I also work in felt - I'm best known for my highly detailed grocery store food products rendered in felt.
PenFelt Studio exists to create crafting bliss through felting projects - in-person, online, and through the kits available on my website.
I can't wait to have you in a class!
