The video below gives you some insight into preparing willow so that it’s ready to weave.
There’s also a free Willow Handbook which tells you all about willow, just click the link to learn more https://vimeo.com/328193575
This video was shot at the start of 2014, during the willow-cutting open day I had. The idea of having a ‘meitheal’-style willow harvesting began in early 2013, when a group of friends and strangers came together after we had a traumatic fire at our home the xmas before. And they wanted to do it again last year, hence the video.
