Felted flowers workshop (Course inactive)

Great course. Lena explains things very clearly and has a lot of knowledge.

The resources Lena provides are extensive and it was exciting to be able to come away with a picture I will be proud to hang on my wall.

Thanks Lena

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!

Wet Felted Picture Workshop

I had a great day on this course Lena was a very good teacher she is very creative and willing to share her knowledge with a passion for her craft . Lena was very welcoming and her Apple pie was an unexpected bonus.
I would recommend this course as it was a fantastic day and come away with feeling of achievement
I will be signing up for another one of her workshops.

I have now done two courses with Lena. One on nuno felt, and eco/ botanical printing. Lena is a very thorough teacher, and you will learn correct techniques that work (although part of the fun of eco printing is experimentation!)
The courses are "full on" but fun. Bring a notebook to record techniques and results for the future. A camera or mobile phone can be useful for before and after photos too.
Lena's very good for answering any follow up questions you may have afterwards.
Enjoy!

Nuno felted unisex scarf workshop

I attended this class today and I have to say Lena is brilliant. She gives 1:1 tuition to each group member. The class is very informal and fun. Lena provides a lovely apple cake and unlimited tea or coffee.


I would highly recommend attending one of Lena's courses, you will definitely learn lots of new techniques.

Wet Felted Picture Workshop

I attended this course in May and had a wonderful time. Lena was a wonderful tutor and I came home with a beautiful landscape. I will definitely be attending another on Lena's courses and can't recommend her highly enough.

Thank you Lena.

Nuno felted lace scarf (Course inactive)

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.

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.

Felted flowers workshop (Course inactive)

I'm new to working with felt and found the workshop very interesting. Lena is an excellent teacher and breaks down difficult concepts and ideas into easy to understand instructions. She takes her time and made sure that everyone was able to produce some lovely flowers. The afternoon was really fun and friendly I will definitely be attending more of her workshops.

I really enjoyed this class and will definitely be back for more. Lena was so organised and managed to tailor her approach to everyone’s level of skill and ability. I really enjoyed having a go and made 3 beautiful flowers that I am so proud of. Her friendly approach and attitude made a long day seem anything but. Have a go, you will love it too.
