Maker's bio

I have an established background in designing and making textiles, working primarily with wool. With a passion for colour, I work with machine knitted and felted wearables and soft furnishings, which I applique, embellish or stitch. I have become fascinated by hand felting for the freedom of colour mixing, mark making and sculptural possibilities it offers, which I find very exciting .

Sharon reviewed: A one day felt making course designing and making your own pair of cosy slippers. in the Forest of Dean

"We had a fun and interesting day with Chris. What a fascinating process it was to make a pair of slippers, with a great selection of colours to choose from. A really different workshop. Plenty of coffee or tea, and a lovely home made soup for lunch."

Christine Waygood. Contemporary Textiles. responded:

" Thank you Sharon. I'm glad you both enjoyed your day. I would love you to send me photos of your completed slippers, and hope to see you again in the future. "

Tamsin Kilner reviewed: A One-day Feltmaking Course to Make a Fabulous Felt Hat in the Beautiful Forest of Dean.

"This was a truly excellent experience overall- my daughter was keen to make a top hat and Christine made one the day prior to the course so that she was well-prepared to support my daughter’s project, which turned out fantastically well. We each came away with hats we love, completely made in the one day, and I was so impressed by Christine’s skills, knowledge, and enthusiasm for her craft, as well as the lovely location of her workshop and the facilities she had. Amazing range of colours on offer and lots of examples for inspiration as well. Thoroughly recommend! "

Christine Waygood. Contemporary Textiles. responded:

" Thank you so much for your review. I really enjoyed our day, and having to get to grips with making a top hat! I've turned the sides up on mine, and it's worked really well! All the best , Chris"

Rose reviewed: A one day felt making course designing and making your own pair of cosy slippers. in the Forest of Dean

"I had a lovely birthday making moss inspired felt slippers with Chris. They went with one of her hats which also had a very mossy theme! Jem made a very delicious lunch which we enjoyed outside in the vibrantly colourful garden. Chris helped me as much and as little as I needed, while making her own pair of gorgeous slippers. Chris and Jem gave me valuable advice for the surrounding area on the rest of my weekend trip, and sent me along with some of Jem's homebrewed cider to celebrate my birthday with! They helped make one of my best and most memorable birthdays, thank you so much for such a wonderful day."

Christine Waygood. Contemporary Textiles. responded:

" Thank you Rose! I'm so glad you enjoyed your day-and survived your camping in the forest! I really enjoyed our day too. All the best for your next adventure, and new job. Chris "
