About the Course

This course is principally aimed at those with basic felting experience. However, it is also suitable for complete beginners.

Welcome to my nuno felted (wet felting) scarf workshop to create a very light scarf by painting on silk with wool simply using a nuno felting technique. We will be using hand woven Margilan silk and merino wool to create light but warm felted scarf.

You will learn how to create various textures using merino wool, silk and other fibers. Then you will be felting and filling your scarf using various techniques. You will take home your fabulous scarf, memory of great time in a company of other created people and new knowledge of nuno felting. The nuno felted scarf workshop is one of my most popular.

Please bring 2 hand-size towels and a light lunch.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Tools, materials and light refreshment, including home baked cake.

Hi, just complete the nuno felting workshop and had an amazing day. Lena is very good at teaching . I enjoyed the history of felting then the practical, lena made sure that everyone got the help and guidance needed to ensure we got the most from the day.... I loved it and I'm looking forward to my next workshop

This is an excellent course taught by a super lady with a huge amount of patience and expertise.
Every stage was explained perfectly and help was given all the way through and particularly when needed.
I have been on other wool craft courses but this one was the best and I came away with a beautiful scarf.
I can certainly recommend not only the course, but the teacher as well, and it was well worth the long journey to be there.
Thank you Lena for all your help and I will certainly look out for more of your courses.

My daughter and I have just completed a nano wool workshop with Lena. We are novices and we're a little anxious about our ability to produce a scarf that would be wearable. Within a short time we were reassured by Lena that we would and we did. We both have scarves that far exceed our expectations. They are fabulous and our family and friends can't believe we made them.
It was hard work, however I am 71 and have a back problem and found it within my physical capabilities. Lena is a good teacher and makes each stage sound easy. Help was always available. In all we had a fab day. Thank you Lena. We are planning to make more scarves as gifts.

Lena explained and demonstrated each stage of the the process, whilst also proving many hints and tips to us students on felting and the use of silk. Whilst it was quite hard work, physically, the day absolutely flew by. It was lovely to come away with new skills and a gorgeous new scarf. I can't wait to try again at home! Thanks, Lena!

I had the best day I was nervous initially but soon that left me after we introduced ourselves at the beginning. I came away with a scarf to be proud off and say I made it. It was hard work on your muscle but the aches after are worth it. Made new friends and now understand the love people get for this craft and cannot wait to do another project. Lena is a great teacher even with students that don't lisen fully and do the odd mistakes and course trouble like me.

I have never felted before , but Lena made it look really easy. She explained everything really well and helped us as we worked . She was really welcoming and friendly, just what you need when you attend a course on your own. Small groups so Lena is able to help when needed. I loved it, and came away with a beautiful nuns felted scarf. I am amazed at how professional it looks. I really enjoyed it and would definitely attend another course, well worth the cost.

An excellent course. Lena was very informative and welcoming. The atmosphere was lovely and I came away with a scarf which I'm so pleased with. Would definitely recommend this course and teacher.

I am relatively new to felting but am completely hooked. Lena is an excellent teacher she took us step by step through the process and I produced (with help!) a really knock out scarf! I was absolutely thrilled. A really terrific but quite tiring day. I would definitely recommend a day with Lena. Seeing her own work on display in the workshop was a real treat.
I look forward to another day soon.

I have my own business as a feltmaker but I still like to do workshops to learn new techniques from other experienced feltmakers. Lena is an excellent feltmaker and an excellent teacher. Her work is also stunning. She is very enthusiastic and passionate about her work and is a huge inspiration to those who meet her and learn from her.

I had a thoroughly enjoyable day. Lena was enthusiastic and gave us good instructions throughout the day. It was nice to meet other people in a small group setting and share ideas. I came away with a lovely scarf and keenness to book another of Lena's courses.

Lena is a great teacher and her courses are well paced with enough hands on one to one tuition for everyone. This is the 2nd course I have done with her (already booked in for a 3rd!!)and I always go with a 100 ideas but come back with a 1000!!! Her studio has lovely examples on show and lots of lovely fellow 'feltaholics' attend her classes so the whole day feels indulgent, inspirational and very satisfying!!!!

I have just made a gorgeous nuno felted scarf at Lena Archbolds workshop. Lena is such a wonderful teacher, patient, explicit and enthusiastic. The atmosphere in her workshop is welcoming and friendly, non judgemental and patient. Her attention to detail is excellent as is her advice post course . I would not hesitate to recommend her workshops . The workshops are excellent value for money, and you always leave with a beautiful piece of work.

My first ever experience of felting has me hooked. Lena is an excellent teacher very welcoming and the other ladies on the course made it a real pleasure. Enjoyable day with a lovely scarf to bring home. Highly recommend this course for beginners and experienced alike. Will be booking another soon

Although I have done many Felted Workshops with Lena Archbold, today was My first Nuno Felted Workshop. Was very challenging for me as a Blind Lady. Lena our tutor was very patient extremely informative about technique and materials. This lady has the patience of an Angel always Welcoming and most enjoyable Workshop would highly recommend Felting Workshops with Lena Archbold.

My first work shop with Lena will definitely be doing another one , she is an excellent teacher and there is plenty of materials to work with.

A great day thank you. Welcoming, friendly and informative. Lena was an excellent tutor, attentive and supportive. I left with a beautiful Nuno scarf with which I'm delighted.

I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, meeting Lena and learning a new skill, nuno felting. The workshop is well equipped and was very relaxed and each stage clearly explained.
I can highly recommend this workshop.

This was my second workshop with Lena ... all I can say is what an Excellent way to acquire a new skill and learn new techniques. Lena is a very patient tutor ... I could jar the patience of a saint... but she explained and demonstrated every aspect of the making process extremely well, even I could follow the instructions. Met some wonderful people and saw a variety of different ideas come to fruition. Highly highly recommend spending some quality 'me' time on one of Lena's courses. I will be back :)

- - #7522

This was such a fun and instructive workshop. I brought home a wonderful scarf and Lena was a most wonderful instructor and I'm coming back for another session later this year!

I am a quilter and sewer, so I have to find another outlet to get me to relax, and this is it. Felting is a whole new entity to me, and something I do for myself, it's my "me" time. It is quietly creative, and full of surprises. Lena is an excellent teacher, and the classes are brilliant, she is very intuitive as well as skilled in her craft.....I just love the classes. I cannot recommend these felting classes more highly, and that's also as one who treats her own skills as professional also.

Another excellent workshop with a great garment to bring home ( the nuno felted scarf). Lena's workshops are fun, lovely studio and Lena is very welcoming and an excellent tutor. She is very patient and the workshops are small so she is all ways at hand for advice and guidance.Will definitely be back. Bev.

I've been to Lena`s classes 4 times now. She has a lovely workshop, she is a very patient tutor and very skilled in what she does. A very friendly place where you can take your time to learn your new skills, highly recommended

- - #5455

An excellent workshop in which we are encouraged and inspired by lena to try new skills. lena is an excellent tutor and very patient. Her colourful studio is a pleasure to work in, together with enjoyable company of other like minded crafters ,and cake of course.
A wonderful space for anyone wanting to try new skills or develop existing skills and with the help of Lena I am sure you will be very proud of your finished scarf at the end of the session .

- - #5444

Superb workshop from start to finish. Each step of the process explained in detail with lots of help available at all times. Can highly recommend any and all of Lena's workshops as good value for money for the teaching and supplies provided and you will take away some beautiful pieces that have made whilst making lots of new friends.
