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.

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.
