About the Course

Learn to make your own beautiful felt bag on this one day course!

You will be shown how different styles of bags are made. How to add handles, flaps or a pocket, and to design the pattern, then helped to make a bag to your own design.

You can never have too many bags!

Felt is one of the earliest fabrics to be made, occurring throughout the world, and used extensively for everything from hats to tents. It is simple and therapeutic to make, using easily obtainable equipment and materials, and offers the possibility of fantastic results.

I have been making, and teaching felt making for many years now, and have developed this range of courses to cover basic felt making techniques, to produce a finished item during the day, and to encourage further experimentation ( and of course have lots of fun)!

You will be given notes on what we have covered, to remind you when you decide to have another go!

I really enjoyed your felt-making session last week. It’s a process I’ve not had the opportunity to try before and I didn’t expect to complete a whole item, I’m really pleased with it. Please keep me on your mailing list for future sessions.

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.

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.
