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 .

A one day felt making course designing and making your own pair of cosy slippers. in the Forest of Dean
"I had a fabulous day with Christine on 2nd September 2022. The workshop is held in a lovely light workshop in Christine's garden. I have no experience of felting but by the end of the day I had lots of information and practice and lots of inspiration for future makes. We made multicoloured felt circles and turned them into 3D flowers but if flowers were not your thing I felt that Christine could adapt the course to your needs. Lunch of home grown produce and home made cider went down very well."
"A fun course, stretching the beauty from felt. I wondered how the bare felt would become a slipper at the onset and before my very eyes to my amazement things gradually took shape.
A great day at a beautiful location, Christine was an amazing hostess and teacher all round.
I look forward to my next course :-)"
"I had a great time making my unique wet felted hat with Christine! The day was enjoyable throughout, very relaxed. Lunch included, a very sociable time.
Amazing to see the felting process turn gradually little shreds of wool into a wearable garment.
Many thanks to Christine and her husband."
" Thank you Caroline.
I had a great time too. I hope you'll enjoy wearing your hat, and look forward to seeing you again when you need a pair of slippers . Do come over to see us when the studio is open in July."
