2017 is just soooo exciting because I’m working on this:

Fifty BEES: The Interconnectedness of All Things
Did you know that there are around 250 different bees in Britain which include 24 species of bumblebees, 225 solitary bees and just one honeybee?
Did you also know that many are in decline; how will we survive without them….we wouldn’t?
The focus of Fifty BEES: The Interconnectedness of All Things is to illustrate how diverse our bee population is, how endangered it is and how pivotal they all are to our ecosystem.
I am creating 50 small, almost life-size bee pieces in wool and another 50 artists, makers, writers etc.are producing an artpiece in response to the habitat, linked wildlife, ecology, flight, sound, predators, (or whatever they choose) of 1 specific British bee; they will use media of their choice.

The exhibition will take place this July at ACEarts in Somerset from 1st – 22nd July 2017 although the deadline for the completion of work will be the end of April.

But if you do fancy coming to say hello, this is where you’ll find me, I’ve included some dates for next year as needlefelt classes will be fairly limited so planning and booking is essential.

MARKETS Where you can find me over the next few months

Bath Artisan May 14th, June 11th, August 13th, September 10th, October 8th, November 12th.
