About Lydia Needle

Lydia Needle

Environmental artist living and working in Somerset

I am a Somerset artist and curator.
One of the areas of focus in my work is British pollinators, especially bees. For example, FIFTY BEES: The Interconnectedness of All Things.
This is a collaborative art project about Britains 275 bees; each year I make 50 from wool, stitch and vintage containers. I then invite fifty collaborative artists to make work in response to the ecology of one bee. You will find some of the 200 bees that I have made since 2016 listed on these pages.
In addition to that, in 2020 I created a new body of work called ‘Motheaten hierarchies’ which has a heavy emphasis on flies and moths. A few of these can be found here.
At present I am attending Bath Spa University on the Masters in Fine Arts course - for this, my focus is soil - watch this space

And thanks so much for stopping by
