Due to the nature of the hand printing process each print is individual and therefore will not be exactly the same as others.
Bees are very important pollinators and are crucial for a lot of our food. They are also important to our economy as without them the cost of pollinating crops and our food would rise. They pollinate many wildflowers in the UK and are an indication of how healthy the environment is. Some bee species are threatened by extinction. Habitat loss, pollution and climate change are some of their threats.
The design was hand drawn onto the lino.
Areas that were not to be printed were cut away using carving tools.
Ink was applied to the raised areas using a roller.
Printing paper was placed on top of the lino and pressure was applied to the back of the print using a baren.
This technique transfers the ink to the paper.
The paper is then removed to reveal the image left from the transfer process.
The print is then left to dry.
This print is sold unframed and will be sent with backing cardboard in biodegradable packaging for protection.
