I attended a felt hat making course and enjoyed every part of it. The start with great coffee. Christine warmly explains every step and diplomatically explains should you make a mistake! Not that I did!! Flapjacks for mid morning and a fabulous homemade, with homegrown ingredients, lunch just topped off the experience with lovely people. All that and a hat!

Colette Kresse

Well what a beautiful day with Christine, course hat making was easy to follow and with an outstanding result in my beautiful hat. Would highly recommend anyone to go along and try this wet felt making. Lovely lunch provided was amazing. Thank you so much for a stress less and relaxing day.

I would just like to say what a wonderful day I had with Christine on the 23rd September 2017, making a felt hat. Four of us students altogether, with three of us makng hats, and the other one making a nuno scarf. All so fascinating, with lots of banter between us, and such a fab lunch made by Christine's hubby, not forgetting Christine's homemade 'FlatJacks'!

We thoroughly enjoyed our feltmaking day at Chris' delightful cottage, in such a pretty valley. The instructions for finding it were spot on and the welcome was very warm.-we knew were in for a fabulous, happy and creative day.

Chris calmly and with great patience showed us the techniques. Her workshop was full of beautiful examples of felt to inspire us. The lunch was simply delicious. And tea and flapjacks at regular intervals.

Chrisí expertise and help enabled each of us to successfully achieve our ambitious ideas.

What a treat of a day out!

Dear Chris, Thank you for a wonderful 'felt-hat-making' day last Saturday. I came away feeling very colourful and really inspired by your amazing creativity and imagination. Looking forward to enrolling for another course very soon.

I would very much like to thank you for my introductory session to the world of felting. As a complete novice to all things art and craft, I was supported and inspired to produce a piece of work that can be made into a tissue box cover at a later date. Your years of experience and love of the medium created a relaxed and happy atmosphere in which to focus on a new skill. The setting of your home and workshop are charming and well worth the hour's drive from the Bath and Bristol area-in fact I would say that the journey itself set my creative juices flowing; passing as I did the most spectacular views of the Severn estuary both crossing the original bridge via the M48 and on the A48 from Chepstow to Blakeney. Lunch was really tasty and left us punters asking "Are there any more men like your husband who can knock up a soup with home grown veg and bake flapjack who aren't already spoken for in the near vicinity!" Altogether a totally fulfilling experience and I can't wait to make a return visit for my second Saturday chez toi.

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!

Ana Kirby

Dear Christine, 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. Many thanks

I had a lovely day with Chris making felt. It was the first time I had done anything like this and I managed to make something to keep with Chris's expert guidance. It was a really fun day, where I could forget about the world for a while and get totally engrossed in colour.

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.

Clare

I am delighted to have discovered the amazing painterly qualities that felt making can achieve, the course was a revelation. The day spent learning the techniques was very enjoyable, and I was happy to have made two pieces by the end of the day. Chris has a beautiful range of colours to work with, she is an inspirational tutor, knowledgeable and friendly, and I can wholeheartedly recommend the experience.

Diane Bews

I've just returned from one of Chris' feltmaking courses - what a wonderful day! Stepping into Chris' studio is like entering an Aladdin's Cave of colour. Thanks to her inspirational approach to teaching, I've not only learnt new skills but have also created a beautiful wall hanging. Thank you once again for helping me find my creative streak!

Every woman has a favourite dress; one that makes them feel like the best version of themself. Mine was made by Chris Waygood. Luxurious forest green wool with huge slightly quirky pockets, a scattering of glorious colour and delicious detail round the collar. It's comfortable, cosy and utterly unique. I love it.

Annie McKie

I can thoroughly recommend Chris' felt making courses. She's a great teacher. I had great fun learning new skills and then using them to create a lovely piece of decorative felt good enough to frame as a picture! I am definitely looking forward to the next course.

Jane Fairman

As a desperate man with no concept of what to buy for my partner's Christmas present Chris saved my life by making her an amazing coat unique in every aspect. All I had to do a was supply one of my partner's wardrobe items! The result was an excellent investment in all respects

Hugh Thrift

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.
