Great fun day. We learnt the whole felt making process then Chris really inspired us to choose the colours then guided us through the process to create our own beautiful slippers.

My daughter and I had never done any felting before so didn't know what to expect. Christine was welcoming and everything was very relaxed and, as there were only three of us that day, it felt very personal. She demonstrated each step clearly and encouraged us to really play with colours and patterns rather than stick to a formula - it was great fun and lovely to be able to come away with something you could actually wear!! Delighted with what we achieved. A very enjoyable and creative day spent in a lovely part of the countryside.

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.

I have now attended 3 of Christine's feltmaking courses and have enjoyed them very much. She is a great teacher who loves what she is doing. The workshop is in a very beautiful part of the countryside and it is lovely to escape for a day of creativity. There is a wide choice of materials to use and I have been thrilled with the the things that I have made. I am looking forward to the next course.
