Little Forest Land Art

Little Forest Land Art was started in early 2017 by ceramicist Jan Griffiths and artist Adrian Mundy on land surrounding Jan’s studio in the Hampshire countryside, north of Fareham.

With our growing team of helpers we are working directly in the landscape, manipulating trees, raising earthworks and creating spaces for other artists to make and display their work.

Our Little Forest Land Art team working on site

Having initially focused on the 3 acre meadow, we are now starting to work into the woodland immediately surrounding it. We are also working on an area recently cleared of diseased trees, giving us a blank canvas.

About Art in the Garden
At the moment, the main public opening of LFLA is during Art in the Garden. This is an annual open studio event taking place in early summer, in and around Jan’s meadow and in her studio.

Art in the Garden 2017

It features Jan’s ceramics and the work of other invited artists and makers. Now in its 5th year, it attracts a great following to purchase the latest creations or to wander around the relaxing environment and be inspired. As we open up the woodland areas, there will be more to see in the coming years.

Boarhunt 4th Plinth – before & after felling

As part of the site preparations a large un-safe oak tree had to be felled. This left the oak stump and a big open space. For Art in the Garden 2018 we are looking for an artwork to be shown on what we are calling the Boarhunt 4th Plinth.
