I started making some willow bark cordage yesterday. It’s for a collaboration with Julia Edwards a local potter.
I’ll be needing a lot more than this!
It’s a slow process. The willow was harvested at the beginning of the year, the bark stripped in early summer and then the cordage takes time to make.
However, it’s an incredibly relaxing thing to make. You get into a rhythm and just get lost in the making. Head to my Instagram account to see a little video of me making it 😊 @karen_lawrence_basketry
