Bees are under threat like never before. Six members of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen have come together to respond in their own way to the current plight of bees. Inspired by the example of the rooftop beehives on Princesshay shopping centre in Exeter, they have made work in the fields of printmaking, photography, ceramics, textiles and jewellery.
The exhibition seeks to engage interest in how we can all do a little bit to raise awareness of the importance of bees and how, by small acts such as choosing to grow bee-friendly plants in our gardens, we can contribute to the health of our own local bees.
The exhibition will be launched on the evening of Friday 5th with a short talk by Jason Wallis from WeeTree Nurseries who is responsible for training the new team of Princesshay bee keepers.
Exhibitors – Lynn Bailey, Philippa de Burlet, Helen Edwards, Mei Lim, Debby Mason, Yume Martin.
