I have been working on a project about our glorious, much overlooked British bees.
It’s called FIFTY BEES: The Interconnectedness of All Things because it’s about how important our bees and other pollinators are and how they are connected to everything, including us.

I stared with making fifty of Britain’s 270 bees.

And then I made another fifty.

All of them are made from wool which I needlefelted and stitched and worked into vintage container.

Finally, following a lot of requests, I’ve photographed 21 them and sent them to be turned into very beautiful, high-quality prints. So here they are – which one is your favourite?

In this collection you will find:
Bee 11: The Wool Carder Bee
Bee 14: The Worker Honey Bee
Bee 17: The Queen Bilberry Bumblebee
Bee 18: The Queen Moss Carder Bee
Bee 20: The Queen Large Garden Bumblebee
Bee 21: The Queen Broken-belted Bumblebee
Bee 23: The Queen Shrill Carder Bee
Bee 29: The Female Ivy Bee

A little something about the printing method used.
It is Sinterix or sinterescent print, a process based on a heat-suffused sintered powder application to the paper. Sinterescent prints are characterised by extremely high image quality and can be printed at very high resolution to bring up extremely fine detail.

The papers used are all are FSC approved, compliant to ISO14001, are rated 'acid free' and have non-ageing specification is to ISO 9706 (Permanent), which means they will not degrade under normal archival or storage conditions for at least 300 years.

According to the Fine Art Guild (for art prints): "Colours should be relatively lightfast, scoring 6 or more on the Blue Wool Scale." These prints score 6 or higher on this scale and considered a comparable product to Giclée prints.

Please note that colour, tone, and shade may vary according to your computer or phone screen. Therefore, there may be small differences between what you see on your screen and the print..

PLEASE NOTE: These prints are UNFRAMED but fit in standard frame sizes.

The size of the prints are A5 (148.5mm x 210mm). If purchasing prints to include a mount, it will measure 250mm x 300mm approximately and come with optional cellophane sleeve (but we’d be over the moon if you opted for the ‘naked’ version so we’re doing that 50p cheaper.)
Please get in touch if you are interested in a different sizes
Please allow approx 1-2 weeks for the print & delivery process but I hope to get them out to you sooner.

I love working on commissions and personal order but do get in touch with me before hand - needle felting by it's very nature is time consuming so commissions needs plenty of run up time.
All my kits come in a paper bag with handles and labelling on the front. For postage, kits are boxed in plain cardboard boxes without motifs or labels so that the contents are deliberately obscure - receiver will not know what is inside.
I also offer gift wrapping if that is preferred but please get in touch so we can chat about this.
I do offer wholesale with my kits - just get in touch and we can discuss costs and shipping.
