My method is to cover the table with plastic, then a layer of bubble wrap, a layer of synthetic lace curtaining, the piece to be felted and finally another layer of lace. The two layers of lace allow me to pick up and move a wet heavy piece without stretching or tearing it while it is still tender. I use COOL water with soap already in it to wet the piece down. I transferred this technique from nuno felting where I use it to slow the process down. This gives inexperienced felters a better shot at success. We worked the piece as a big group by hand to the prefelt stage. Then used warmer water and began rolling. First on a pool noodle withe bubble wrap until we reached proper felt. To full we rolled with a hard stick directly on the felt with a towel around the outside. Now onto photos.
