I've been trying, and struggling, to make a linocut bee (red mason bee) almost actual size. Hats off to you @lydianeedle this is blooming difficult!! 'Fifty Bees:the interconnectedness of all things' exhibition is on soon at ACEarts in Somerton, Somerset, UK. Lots of bee artwork to see there 🐝🐝#printmaker #printmakersofinstagram #linocut #linoprint #bee #redmasonbee #savethebees #masonbee #lydianeedle #fiftybees #fiftybeesartist #nature #print_is_life #get_imprinted

A female six-banded Nomad Bee arrived safely yesterday. Isn't she beautiful? Made by my very clever, talented sister Lydia Needle. Made of British wool and vintage Kambari gold thread and embroidery thread #fiftybees #bees #lydianeedle #needlefelting #over50

Finding these hounds quite hard to resist. @lydianeedle has lots of amazing kits so you can have a go at making your own too. #lydianeedle #needlefelting #makeyourown #buylocal #handmadegifts

New edition out now - get yours at The Atkinson Gallery #evolver #art🎨 #artmag

Up close... the story unravels of a rare bee - The Cliff Furrow bee - found at Eype beach, Dorset in the lower clay landslips - this little concertina book maps what flowers it visits, flight times, notes made when I walked to Eype Mouth to collect the black clay... a found box is the repository for my book...embalmed in clay... so that when handled the material of place is left on the viewers hands...a memory of materiality... #haptic exploration #sensory mapping #50bees #lydianeedle #walking #objects #found #bee #dorset #material

Wonderful #exhibition all about my favourite bee-ings. So many thoughtful interpretations of different bee species. Definitely worth a visit! #50bees #50beesproject #50beesartists #lydianeedle #🐝 #bees #somerton

My humans took me to my very 1st art exhibition. 'Fifty Bees" by the incredibly talented Lydia Needle. The most beautiful bees crafted from wool displayed with fifty other works of art by equally talented humans ⭐️🐝⭐️🐝⭐️🐝 #boo #lydianeedle #fiftybees #somerton #acearts #aceartstudio #creativity #honeybee #artexhibition

Such wonderful characters emerged from the wool today @thslippedstitch - due to, of course, the lovely people making them.
I had a fabulous day, laughed loads and it was a real pleasure to get to know the ladies - thanks to everyone who came along to #stabwithlove and to Millie for hosting - hope to see you all again soon.
Next class is British Birds on 20th May, do come - places available on the Slipped Stitch website.

Today’s Bee is 13Bee) The Potter Flower Bee - this is really for me because I really love to Potter, don’t you? The word itself is lovely, “potter, potter, potter...”
That’s what I fancy doing, pottering.....
Have a great day folks.

Today’s Bee is 9bee) Female Perkin's Mining Bee.
One of the lovely vintage clockmaker's containers provides a beautiful safe space for this tiny little creature - it is 2.5x the actual size of the real bee.
'This is a scarce southern species recorded as far north as Warwickshire but with the majority of records in SE England and along the south coast. It occurs in a variety of umbellifer-rich habitats, including chalk grassland, coastal grassland, soft-rock cliffs, quarries and sometimes coastal grazing marsh.
Adults fly in May and June and pollen seems to be obtained entirely from umbellifers. It seems particularly keen on Hemlock Water-dropwort, Hogweed and Alexanders, and was using Ground Elder at one Warwickshire site.
Nesting seems to typically occur in very short turf or sparsely-vegetated areas on south-facing slopes. It is the special host of the rare cleptoparasitic nomad bee Nomada conjungens.' Steven Falk.
I made this by sculpting with wool, needle felting it into one of the vintage clockmaker's containers. I then finished with embroidery thread, vintage Kamibari gold thread and beads.
39mm x 15mm

This morning’s bee is in such a darling little compact, I love the soft greeny lid. I’m also particularly partial to the way the gold leaf has worked on the bee’s abdomen.
This piece will be one of the pieces on show at the Marshwood Art exhibition next month.
Details to follow.
