Joe Gregory is an Artist and Willow Sculptor based in Todmorden, West Yorkshire.
About her work she says ‘I’ve been weaving with Willow for about 12 years, initially as something physical and creative to help me get over a long illness. I quickly became quite obsessed, a wonderful natural material to work with, always forgiving and so very strong. I love in my sculptural pieces how the Willow moves and weaves like muscles and sinew through the body. And I love the contrast of sculpture to basketry, from free flowing forms to rigid patterns and back again. I look to the future and the possibilities are endless………..’
Joe creates small & medium sized Sculpture and Art Basketry in her Studio where she also regularly teaches and occasionally works with schools, companies, voluntary and public sector organizations, people of all ages and abilities to create inspiring and transformational projects and art.
