Beginner/Intermediate Needle Felting – Emperor Penguin with a Love Letter – Held at CeCe’s Wool in Guilderland, NY

CeCe’s Wool Shop in Guilderland, NY is hosting us for this lovable penguin workshop!

Join us for a day of needle felting as you learn how to make an adorable emperor penguin holding a love letter in a relaxed and supportive environment. In this beginner/intermediate level workshop, you will learn about color blending, layering, and creating small details, as you sculpt a three-dimensional needle felted emperor penguin and a tiny felt love letter from start to finish. Finished penguin is approximately 4.5″ tall.

I have rated this class as “beginner/intermediate” as we’ll be working with some more subtle color transitions and shaping for this project. I believe it’s suitable for a beginner who is motivated and artistically inclined, but some experience, such as another one of my beginner classes or having done a felting project on your own would certainly be beneficial. All materials are included.

Date:  Wednesday, February 19

Time:  1:00pm – 5:00pm

Location:  CeCe’s Wool, Hamilton Square Mall, 2080 Western Avenue, Guilderland, NY 12084
