Opens Thurs 30 June at 6pm in the Nishi Gallery. All welcome.

Make your very own pre-fab swarm trap – a safe house for honey bees – to take home and install with Honey Fingers and Many Many. Hotel Hotel’s resident beekeepers Sarah and Dermot Asis Sha’Non will share the magic of bee architecture including wax and comb.
When did you last pull something apart and fix it? This talk breaks open the concept of repair and why has it become so difficult? It provides new thinking. How can we take back control of our own resources? How can we break our dependence on manufacturers who create product with limited life spans? Some say ‘buy or die’. We shout ‘fix or die’.
