Swarm is a collective of Artists and Makers creative response to the plight of the Honeybee and other Pollinators. This exhibition has been brought together by Laney Birkhead to support her Swarm of Bees Print Installation, which is the result of a year long printmaking project to raise awareness of Bee decline. Hope you can come along and visit the exhibition and walk inside the enormous Swarm print as well as enjoy and buy beautiful art and craft work inspired by Bees. A documentary film produced by Paul Harris will also be screened, which tells the story of the project over the last year.
Throughout the Swarm Exhibition there will be a series of Bee related arts and crafts workshops several run by the Swarm artists themselves - these are available to view and book now!
