One of the exciting aspects of this project is that I am getting to prolong my felting shelf life and speed up production courtesy of the marvellous Groovi rolling machine.
It is quite a scary thing, much like a very large old fashioned mangle, but electrically controlled.
The key is in establishing the right pressure for all the different types of felt that I need for this work, and making sure that I don’t do away with too much of my precious organic wool while trying it out.
More news soon plus a video. But if you can’t wait, I did ‘allow’ my friend Maria try it out for creating backgrounds for her work. Maria getting Groovi
