Bees

Embroidered bees by Ngaio Blackwood

When you look more closely at your environment you can't miss the bees. These little things are an everyday event  but they do such an important job in the world and as apart of our ecosystem. 

Each of these embroideries explores the beauty and importance of the bumble bee. Stitched in 2016 for the "Made of Snow" exhibition held at the Franklin Arts Centre

Physically these pieces show a realistic bumble bee, they are hand stitched using embroidery on cotton fabric. They are separated from the "real" world to be appreciated on their own.
