Having attended all classes, the intermediate/advanced is a class I attend regularly and will continue to do so.

All the resources needed are included and I find Bernads advice invaluable. I cannot recommend this class highly...

Image for Nuno Felted or Warm Woolly Scarves
I had a very enjoyable day at the nuno felting scarf making course. I was made to feel very welcome and was given all the expert step by step guidance I needed to make my first nuno scarf. It made a wonderful gift to my mother. Thank you Barbara.

A very enjoyable day indeed! Barbara is a great teacher, and her studio is an excellent place to work. She's got some wonderfully inspiring samples to show the range of effects you can achieve with Nuno felt... Very good value, too; I'm delighted with my scarf and plan to experiment further. Certainly I'd recommend this course to anyone!
