Sue Stone - Chair 62 Group of Textile Artists
The 62 Group is an artist led organisation. We aim to incorporate and challenge the boundaries of textile practice through an ambitious and innovative annual programme of exhibitions. Since its establishment in 1962 some of the most highly regarded British textile artists have been members of the 62 Group. The membership is now international and is achieved through selection. The group represents a wide range of textile disciplines including tapestry, embroidery, feltmaking, print, constructed and three-dimensional approaches.
