Alder Hey Children's Hospital Residency

My willow sculpture “The Apiary” has now been installed in the Radiology Courtyard at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool. This piece is the legacy arising from my residency working with children, families and staff on one of the surgical wards over 16 sessions during the autumn of 2017.

There is also a sculpture of a slinking fox made in conjunction with the children and staff on Ward 3A installed on the play deck at the end of the ward.

Caroline Gregson
Willow Sculpture Artist

I have loved and been inspired by the natural world since I was a child and the ability to work as a Willow Artist and make willow sculptures representing the essence of animals, birds and other living forms brings me great pleasure. I love to represent movement and vitality in my work. My willow sculptures appear to have just paused in their setting before they are ready to move on. One of the nicest things anyone has said about my animal sculptures is that you can always see where they are looking!
