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

Join us for a weekend of needle felting as you learn how to make a beautiful moon bear in a relaxed and supportive environment. In this advanced level workshop, you will learn how to make your own free standing needle felted moon bear from start to finish. Time permitting, you will have the option of adorning your bear with a needle felted botanical motif.

It is recommended that you have a good understanding of needle felting techniques and tools, as well as several completed three dimensional projects under your belt before taking this workshop. All materials are included, and you will get to take your set of felting needles and foam pad home too. Lunch on both days is included, as well as freshly brewed coffee and tea. (Please contact me if you have any dietary restrictions.)
