new tools for Vaucluse House

When I got the go ahead to work on the new Vaucluse house renovations, the first thing we needed to do was to make some new tools.

Part of making tassels incorporates wrapping beads which can either be wrapped horizontally or vertically. Wrapping vertically is done by hand, but horizontally it is virtually impossible to hand wrap the threads straight. The use of a spinning machine, allows a single thread to be wrapped horizontally — and straight — on to the bead. So, first I needed to to source a local machinist who could help me make the tools.

  1. It was lovely to see you in person. I find it amazing you can invent machines to do these complicated jobs.
