If you go down to the Pink Wood near Bruton in Somerset  during Somersets Arts Weeks you will discover the 62 Group of Textile Artists taking up the challenge of working in this beautiful woodland environment.

The 62 Group is an international group of textile artists, with members in Japan, Germany, Sweden, Australia as well as this country. The group usually exhibit in galleries but this year they have been invited to create innovative installations out of doors.

This challenge was set by a former member, Hannah Streefkerk, a Land Artist working in Sweden and Norway. Her work often involves ‘mending’ the environment by stitching across voids or cracks in trees. Image by Hannah Steefkerk of work called ‘Restoration’.
