EMBROIDER A BEE: And learn about and help our wild bees

February 20 @ 13:00 - 15:00

This is a project to create a huge art quilt. The project aims to raise awareness of the loss of biodiversity, explore the nearly 300 kinds of bees we have in this country and help people develop their embroidery skills.

It is a long term project and it is hoped that the final artwork will be exhibited to raise donations for wildlife projects.

Please bring a small hoop  and a needle, and any embroidery threads and/or  cream or white fabric that you have. Old linen napkins and tablecloths are great. This is an unfunded project but I do have a few materials. If you have any embroidery threads , a needle and scissors that would be very helpful – otherwise just book and turn up

More detail about the project is contained in two videos 

  1. is a lovely introduction https://vimeo.com/724988781/f27d4ca421
  2. is a how to video https://vimeo.com/766141264/365f9de6db

Complete beginners are very welcome.

This is an unfunded workshop to produce bees to add to the project. Please pay what you can – we suggest £3 to £5. 

Places are limited – book this workshop by email Vickyvicks@btinternet.com or text 07834287562.  Vicks x
