Humans have been weaving baskets for hundreds of thousands of years. Willows have ancient, global cross-cultural significance; they are strong and respond positively to coppicing and pollarding, two pruning techniques used in land management. Willow bark contains salicin, which has been used by humans for thousands of years to ease pain from stomach pain and headaches. Learn to weave with willows: they are such a joy to weave with! We'll cover identification, regenerative gathering, storage and processing, and several basic techniques required to make a basket.
