Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Expert basket maker Jackie Sweet shares her passion for this craft whilst weaving a small basket with two different colours of willow here at Special Branch Tree Nursery in East Sussex. Jackie speaks of the historical, practical and artistic significance of weaving and tells us that, through her work, she can enjoy being part of an important creative tradition.

What an excellent video. Loved listening to your wisdom. Can I use willow harvested straight away? Does it have to be "cured" then soaked? Or does it only need to be soaked if you harvested it months ago?

I don't think this is intended as a step by step, although watching her hands starting the basket off brought it all flooding back for me!
