Maker's bio

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.
