Maker's bio

Hi I am a self taught willow artist and live in Somerset, surrounded by willow! I make all sorts of commission pieces and you can see my work at Abbotsbury Gardens, Dorset and The Manor House ,Beaminster for charity NGS 2022. I run lots of willow sculpture workshops at Studi0ne,Bridport,River Cottage, Dillington House & Coates English Willow located in Dorset, Devon and Somerset. From hares to deer, pigs, bees, dragonfly and flying owls, Christmas wreaths, to name a few! I can also come to you if you can get 6 people together-local village hall.....

Karen reviewed: Willow Deer Sculpture Haymoor Studio

"I unleashed a new passion in willow sculpting thanks to Jo’s excellent teaching and enthusiasm on the day in this beautifully located centre. Not only were all the deer made on the day worthy of pride of place in our respective gardens but each was individual to the maker. Jo has also been helpful in giving me information and tips on how to go away and continue exploring this craft for myself. I will definitely be booking again for future courses."

Jo Sadler at Forged n Willow responded:

" Thank you so much so Karen, I feel there is so much to be enjoyed in the willow, it just speaks to some of us!! Keep weaving!!!"

Sherrill reviewed: Willow Leaping Hare at Haymoor Studio

"I absolutely loved this course, Jo’s tuition was excellent, enough detail to enable and never too much to make you feel like being back at school! I never imagined in just 5 hours we’d produce a willow sculpture easily as good as ones I’ve seen for sale. I did it with a friend, it was a first for us and there were 6 other people in the group, some with a little experience, all of our willow hare sculptures turned out brilliantly. I’ll definitely be doing another course with Jo in the future… maybe a deer next time."

Jo Sadler at Forged n Willow responded:

" Thank you , I think weaving can really open doors to so much creativity. Glad you came and made such lovely sculpture!"

Suzi reviewed: Willow Leaping Hare at Haymoor Studio

"Jo was a brilliant instructor, very friendly and supportive through out the day, even though she was dealing with a family incident. Everyone's leaping hares looked amazing, could not believe they turned out so well as we were all novices. Thanks Jo for a great experience, I would definitely go back."

Jo Sadler at Forged n Willow responded:

" Aw, thank you so much, everyone made fantastic hares, I was really touched by the kindness from the group too. I am relieved the whole situation turned out positively. Thank you Suzi"
