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!
