We have for a long time been talking about making a steamer. The problem was how do we make one?

I know a few people who use a wallpaper stripper. We however live off grid so do not have the luxury of plugging one in.

At the start of this year Jef came up with a brilliant solution. The system is explained in the video below.

 

 

 

Why would you want to steam your willow? Is it necessary? No it is not. It just gives the willow extra flexibility and shine and it will also stay flexible for longer. I find steamed willow such a joy to work with! It has certainly made my life easier.

Thanks Jef!
