62 Group

The 62 Group is an artist led organisation with an international membership. We aim to incorporate and challenge the boundaries of textile practice through an ambitious and innovative annual programme of exhibitions.

‘Making Space’, our latest selected exhibition, is a varied and inspiring series of 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional work by exhibiting members of the 62 Group of Textile Artists. Inspired by the theme ‘Space’ members were invited to interpret the concept in its widest sense resulting in a diverse response. The work produced includes hand and machine stitch, print, weave, installation and mixed media inspired by textile techniques.

This gallery contains a series of work from our 2016 ‘Making Space’ exhibition at Macclesfield Silk Museum shown alongside newly selected work by exhibiting members not included in the original exhibition.

The 62 Group Gallery Tour and Talk

Meet 62 Group Artists Joanna Kinnersly-Taylor and Fiona Rutherford for a talk about their latest exhibition making space. They will discuss the works on display offering a thought provoking insight into contemporary textile practice, ideas and process.
