The Trials of the Worker Bee

These bee themed Lino block were created from my drawing using a laser cutter at the Making Rooms in Blackburn. The blocks were finished by hand and then printed on Blackburn Museums 150 year old Columbian Press. The Bee pictures will form part of a series of images that will be turned into a contemporary Book of Hours. Books of Hours were designed for meditative contemplation. I associated them with seasonal pictures of labourers working in the fields. The wealthy owner of a Book of Hours might contemplate such things. I sit and look out my window contemplating the bees working hard at the Lavender. The image and the scent of the lavender is calming to me while the bees labour on.
