range of mediums in response to the gallery space.

62 Group Artists Heather Belcher and Lucy Brown will be in conversation, introducing the 62 Group, outlining its aims, history and its connections through textiles at Goldsmiths and beyond. As Goldsmith Textile Alumni, and 62 Group exhibiting and committee members, Heather and Lucy will reflect on their past and present individual practices and future projects of the 62 Group. There will be the opportunity to ask questions and join in discussion while having a chance to handle samples from the 62 Group’s Handling Collection.
Tuesday 11th June. 1-2pm
The Witchcraft Series (Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead) by Anne Jackson, 62 Group artist.
Anne Jackson’s current work titled The Witchcraft Series, explores witch persecution in European history, the idea of "the witch" and witchcraft in contemporary culture. Anne sees this subject as a rich metaphorical territory, with its resonances of fear of the unknown, the feminine, and the "other". Anne will discuss these themes further in context with her personal practice.
