About the Course
This is a really fun course for beginners to create your own special child's toy. We will be exploring ways of making soft toys and puppets, both by using both wet and dry methods of felt making. You will be shown ways of making birds and animals ,and of ways of sculpting them using needle felting.
I will be covering a range of ideas and techniques for making a variety of soft toys in time for Christmas. Have fun creating your own soft toy, be it a monster ,or as cute and cuddly as you like, the choice is yours.
I am showing a variety of items which we have made on similar courses run during the rest of the year, using these techniques.

We had a very fun day creating some new friends with Chris. Chris was very friendly and really good at helping us convert our ideas into felted reality! The setting is also lovely and lunch and snacks very tasty.

Response from Christine Waygood. Contemporary Textiles.:Dear Deborah,
Thank you for your kind review. I hope Nutty ,Darius and Ellie are keeping well, and look forward to hearing from Frances about their exploits!
A fabulous, fun, inspiring and creative day! Although 'crafty' I had never done felting before and so everything was new. Chris was wonderfully patient and inspiring and I came home with two pieces of work that I continue to enjoy. I will definitely be back for more!

I couldn't believe I could achieve something I was so pleased with in just one day. I've never felted before!

Felting courses with Christine Waygood are such great fun. Not only is Chris a fount of knowledge when it comes to every aspect of felt-making but there are simply no limits to her creativity. I always come away feeling really inspired, buzzing with new ideas and looking forward to my next visit.
