Contemporary Textiles & Felt Making Courses

by Christine Waygood


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 .

My work is becoming increasingly expressive and experimental, allowing me to take a more playful approach to making, and I continue to develop ideas for functional pieces, as well as exploring a more fine-art application of materials and techniques. 

I am working towards several exhibitions for the coming year, and also experimenting with new ideas for my workshops.


“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.”
