Make Light Work Tea Towel

Make Light Work Tea Towel


Origin: It is common knowledge that in the face of adversity, in order to be able to protect the vulnerable, people join forces in a similar manner when hands are seen covering the flame of a candle when the wind is high. It makes the light work through protecting it. The phrase is ancient and is speculated have originated in medieval England and spread from there on. (

I drew these hard working bees to symbolize all who come together to accomplish a task. As I drew it I thought of all the folks I've volunteered with over the years who came together to make this world a better place. Of course, as a mother I tried to instill this idea in my children: together we can accomplish so many more things than trying it alone...!

The towels are hand screenprinted/small batch by fellow printmakers working with me on this special project.
