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.
There’s brambles to control…
Lots of brambles…

Cutting the willow bed.
Having initially focused on the 3 acre meadow, we are now starting to work into the woodland immediately surrounding it, creating a woodland path to wander along and come across natural sculptures created by the team or invited artists. We are also working on an area recently cleared of diseased trees, giving us a blank canvas.

The site used to be a pig farm and small holding. We find all sorts in the soil.
Digging up dock plants and other weeds…
… Some harder to get out than others.
We have a path.

Planting silver birch saplings
Just one more hit.
