About Creative with Nature
My name is Joe Gregory, I'm a full time willow sculptor based in Todmorden West Yorkshire. I've been weaving for 12 years, initially self taught and this has led me to develop a series of popular & achievable full day and 2 day weaving courses in sculpture and basketry. As well as teaching from my studio & gallery in Todmorden, I teach across the North West & I now have other highly skilled craft professionals teaching with me too. Joe. xx
