Caroline Gregson Willow Sculptures is the latest entry to the Directory. Caroline is well known for her willow animal sculptures as this photo shows. The excellence of her work has led to her being accepted as a Yeoman Member of the Worshipful Company of Basketmakers. Her work has been featured in national press, on television, and in film.

She runs regular willow sculpture workshops (details and dates can be found on her website), and also provides sculpture workshops for schools and community groups.
