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

In-person course
Chris Thomas - - #34929

I had a fantastic day yesterday making some gorgeous felt slippers with Christine Waygood in her lovely studio in the Forest of Dean. I was an absolute beginner at felting, and was given clear instructions and supported through the whole process. Much to my amazement, I had created a lovely pair of slippers by the end of the day. I would recommend this workshop to anyone. Lovely surroundings and excellent friendly teacher.

Christine, made me very welcome and generously shared her vast knowledge with me over two days. Her lovely studio on the hill was bright and welcoming with a myriad of facilities and equipment. Very highly recommended.

Response from Christine Waygood. Contemporary Textiles.:

Thank you for your kind review.
It was great fun teaching you, and helped to reboot me after a quiet lockdown!
I'm looking forward to seeing your Green man when he's finished.

What a wonderful day I had earlier this week at Chris's one day felt making workshop.
Made to feel very welcome and just loved her studio and that we could make something that I wanted.
I can't wait to make lots more pieces and feel I now have the confidence to carry on.
Fantastic hospitality, lovely lunch and a wonderful bed and breakfast recommended by Chris.
Would love to come again and bring a friend.

Response from Christine Waygood. Contemporary Textiles.:

Thank you so much Sheran. I really enjoyed it too.
I do hope I'll be seeing you again .Come and explore the Forest, and make sure you bring along any pieces that you've make!

‘Lovely day making flowers using felt, very relaxing and fun after a hard week at work, just what I needed. Christine is a great teacher and offers a very warm welcome with delicious home made soup and cake. Great location and lovely house nestling in a sun shine spot’

This was my third trip to Christine Waygood and I loved it! As usual Christine made it inspirational and enjoyable. The studio has a wealth of colourful wools and materials. We spent the day creating felt flowers, using lots of techniques and having lots of fun. I am really pleased with my lovely colourful results and will definitely be coming back.

What a great day. Christine was a patient, helpful inspiring teacher with a lovely approach to her craft and pupils. Well equipped studio, plentiful cups of coffee, wonderful soup for lunch and a view to die for. The process of making the felt was interesting and absorbing, all the slippers that we made were very individual and creative. I shall look forward very much to wearing mine this winter. I would thoroughly recommend Christine's courses.

Response from Christine Waygood. Contemporary Textiles.:

Thank you . It would be lovely to have a photo when you've added the finishing touches.
Hope to see you again.
Chris

This one-day course was most enjoyable. Lots of beautiful colours and an opportunity to make your ideas be expressed in felt.
I have never made any felt before and I came away with a piece I felt proud of. Creative, relaxing and full of surprises!
The studio and house are set in a beautiful garden with stunning views. The lunch was delicious and it was good to be creative with others.

Well done Christine Waygood!

Thank you for a super day. A relaxed and fun experience - I learnt a lot and now have the confidence to go home and try wet felting on my own. Chris shared lots of good ideas and tips over and above the basic wet felting method. Lunch was yummy too. I would recommend the day to anyone who wants to have a go at a new skill in a lovely setting.
