Art & Activism: Felting the Pipe Fork Landscape

Come join us for a fun and creative session of Art and Activism, needle felting the beautiful Pipe Fork Landscape using wool! Sign up here.

We will meet at the Williams Grange at 11 and carpool up to Pipe Fork, a gorgeous riparian area currently under threat of being clear-cut by Josephine County. The Williams Community Forest Project will lead a guided tour of the area, then there will be time for personal exploration and connecting with the land, taking photos of the features you would like to recreate in wool.

This in-person event is perfect for anyone looking to explore their artistic side in a relaxed and supportive environment. No prior experience with felting is necessary – Local fiber artist Corbin Brashear of Wild and Wooly Feltworks will guide you through the process step by step.

50% of proceeds benefit KS Wild and the Williams Community Forest Project’s efforts to protect our sacred and wild local ecosystems. Please dress in layers for being outdoors in March, and bring a folding or camp chair and a hearty lunch! Creativity makes one hungry!

A little about Corbin: Her mixed media needlefelted sculptures, masks, and tapestries celebrate the whimsy and wildness of life. She finds her inspiration in the beautiful environment of the Siskiyou Mountains of Southern Oregon and Northern California, where she has lived for the past 25 years. These mountains have profoundly shaped who she is and what she creates with her art.

Each sculpture is created in her riverside “studio” among the alders. She walks the banks of the river or the beach daily in search of treasures such as driftwood, kelp, lichen and feathers, which she weaves together with the wool, using a felting needle to sculpt and coax the elemental spirit into form. Her artwork is created with the intention of blessing your home and your life with the peace, energy and power of these wild and sacred places.

For the last 15 years she has been leading needlefelting workshops, both locally and in Northern California, for both adults and kids. She loves sharing this satisfying and whimsical art form with people, helping to guide my students to connect with their own inner creativity and sense of magic. Visit her website at
