Willow Ethical Trophy Stag Head sculpture course with Joe Gregory at Creative with Nature Todmorden, West Yorkshire



This is one of my longest running sculpture courses! These fabulous and ethical Stag Heads look great on any wall. Can be “dressed” seasonally with ivy, flowers, baubles and fairy lights etc to create a feature piece. Over the course of the day learn to weave and have fun creating a willow sculpture with great character. Suitable for beginners and those with some Weaving experience this is a lovely way to spend a day. Come alone and meet other crafty folk or come with a friend or two for a special day together. Using the finest English Willows you will learn sculpture techniques to be able to create your own willow sculptures. The Willows tea and coffee house on the ground floor of the building will keep you topped up during the day with the finest rainforest alliance coffees and teas, locally made cakes and simple savouries if you desire with a discount for all students. Notes: No prior experience needed but you must have good mobility in hands & feet & be able to stand whilst working. Please wear old (non dangly) clothes, covered toe shoes (no sandals) & little or no jewellry.

Hi my name is Joe Gregory, I'm a full time willow basket maker and sculptor based in Todmorden, Yorkshire. I've been weaving for approximtely 18 years, initially self taught after a long illness and now a long standing member of the Basketmakers Association. I have been teaching weaving with willow for a long time and I'm proud to say about a third of my students return for a number of courses with me to develop their skills. I have developed a series of popular & achievable half day, full day and 2 day weaving workshops in sculpture and basketry. These can be done as stand alone courses or added together over time to develop skills and confidence. I teach students from across the UK and internationally from my large Georgian workshop in the centre of town just 2 minutes walk from the train station. I teach regularly for the Royal Horticultural Society, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, for a number of smaller organisations around the UK and I occasionally teach internationally.
