Wonderful Willow

If you haven't already discovered it, Wonderful Willow is an open group on Facebook hosted by Lucienne Kramer from the Netherlands. Here you will find links to posts from willow makers from all over the world. Whether your interests are traditional or contemporary, you're sure to find like minds and lots of inspiration. For example:
  • One link led me to Piletossen, a Danish-language blog. Read her post on soaking willow in cold water, hot water and steam here. With Google Translate you can paste text copied from the Danish blog and instantly get a translation. You may have to infer some vocabulary from context, but that's more fun than Sudoku.
  • Another led me to Joan B. Kaar's Willow Bark String Calf (in English).
  • Lucienne posted this link to an interview with Joe Hogan.
You do have to be a member of Facebook to see this group and send a request to join. If you've been resisting Facebook, this one is worth giving in and joining up.


  1. Just testing the comments function. I don't want to miss a thing the willow community wants to share here!

  2. I agree with you, Donna. I just recently found the Facebook group and it is a wonderful venue for inspiration and contacts.

  3. Absolutely, Lene. The willow community may be scattered around the globe, but it's nice to have a convenient gather place where we can get to know each other, learn and share.


Thanks for joining it!
