Weave willow

After making a stool with a willow seat in Cumbria I was really attracted to willow with its muted colours and coppiced growth.  I attended some winter evening classes for willow weaving at York College in 2003 and found I liked it even more.  The smell of wet willow is soothing and earthy and I am amazed how a supply wet willow can be transformed into a solid strong basket or structure.
