Training and experience

An experienced teacher and facilitator of children and adults, Chryssie trained in Felt-making and Design through Craven College Skipton, achieving a City and Guilds Level 3 in July 2005.

“The way the course was taught brought together all the failings of previous attempts at ‘art’ and made them into one huge success for me. I found that I could play with Felt just as I could with the doodlings, splashes of colour and spontaneous craft creations I had been doing for years to amuse and inspire the family children. Suddenly, all that was becoming ‘art’, I was being talked with as an ‘artist’ and my work was on display at Art Exhibitions and Events here in the North West. A far cry from the creatively repressed and terrified Human Being that I was.”

Between 2005-2007 she was employed by Craven College as Support Assistant in the Level 4 City and Guilds Felt-making Design group. Chryssie's role was to support students who were experiencing a range of physical limitations:
•Fibromyalgia (persistent muscle pain) in neck and arms
•Chronic fatigue syndrome (persistent tiredness, both mental and physical)
•Limited (for felt-making) upper body strength (due to being in a wheelchair or convalescing)
•Long term whiplash injury – creating sporadic pains in upper body
•Wrist weakness due to former wrist accident
•Arthritis in fingers and hands

“I worked alongside students on individual projects, consulting them and taking over the physical work at certain points, but always in the way they directed, for the outcome they required for their finished piece. This approach meant that I gained experience of a much wider range of felt-making techniques than I was exposed to during my own course studies at Level 3.”
“These techniques now serve me well for teaching felt-making to a very wide range of adult and children’s groups.”
