JUNE 2018
"The breath of the bright June morn as he threw open the window-shutter filled him with hope; his heart responded to its joyous influence.."   After London

From June1st    Fifty Bees - the Interconnectedness of All Things. 
                            This beautiful exhibition by Lydia Needle and her team of fifty                                                          other artists features Lydia's beautiful handmade bees, all sewn,                                                      embroidered and crafted with the utmost patience and a delicacy                                                    that matches, or even exceeds that of the actual insects. Added to                                                  that, fifty artists have each responded to a bee in their own unique                                                  way, making an exhibition brimming with passion and variety and                                                    perfect for an early summer's visit to the museum. Watch a short                                                    video of the exhibition here .
