How adorable are these little festive birds?!
Learn the skills you need to create a cute little 3-dimensional penguin or robin, using just 100% Merino wool and a felting needle! Enjoying a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits. Take home your own adorable needle-felted penguin!
Suitable for complete beginners, or those who have tried before and would like to improve. You will be guided through every step by Wendy, owner of The Little Craftery, and life-long crafter.
The workshop runs for approximately 2½ hours and is nice and relaxed. Enjoy a chat with like minded people and learn some new skills! All materials and refreshments are included in the price.
Who is the class for?
This workshop is open to anyone who would like to learn to make one of these adorable little penguins or robins! The class is designed for either beginners who have never even touched a felting needle, but anyone (over the age of 16) is welcome.
The skills you will learn in this class are the basic needle felting skills you will need to make 3D models. Wendy will take you through the tools and materials you will use and the basic techniques you will learn. You’ll be able to choose the colours you would like to use for your final piece, and Wendy will show you every step of the way to creating your lovely little bird!
The price includes everything you need: all materials and use of any necessary tools, full instruction from Wendy, and refreshments. You will get to take home the penguin or robin you've made, and also the needle(s) and felting foam you used, so you can make more at home!
What are the design options?
The basic design will remain the same, but everyone's finished penguin will look a bit different at the end, it's all in the technique. You're welcome to give him a different expression, or make him tall and thin or short and stout, Wendy will show you all the techniques you need, to ensure that you make a little bird to be proud of! There will be a choice of colours available, so if you want a purple penguin with green spots, no-one's going to argue!
How long will the class last?
The class will last approximately 2½ hours. It’s best to allow a little extra time as classes sometimes over-run depending on group sizes.
