On a bright sunny day, thousands and thousands of bees emerge from the darkness of their hives to forage for pollen and nectar amid fragrant and colourful patches of flowers. There might be 10,000-30,000 foragers from a single hive, buzzing away, moving from blossom to blossom, collecting the food that they need to sustain their colony.
Come and fill our big 10’ x 10’ floral mandala with foraging bees! Using stamps and printing ink, workshop leader jasna guy will encourage participants to create a beautiful pattern of foragers until our garden is abuzz with busy little bees! How many bees will you add to our garden?
Participants of all ages and experience are welcome.
jasna guy is a visual artist who works primarily with drawing, often incorporating photography, text, and collage as intrinsic parts of image-making process. Her recent work explores the subject of bees through stamping, print-making, and the application of beeswax.
