MAKE A SWARM TRAP (MELB)(Workshop) Sun 15 Nov 2015
|TIME||2 – 5PM|
|DATE||Sun 15 Nov 2015|
Help out the bee by making a swarm trap – a safe house for honey bees. In this workshop, you will make your very own swarm trap to take home and install with the hope of providing shelter to a bee colony. Join in on a pre-fab trap design workshop and learn about swarming, swarm traps, and the best time and locations to install them. By setting up safe bee houses in our cities, suburbs and the bush, we can prevent the destruction of bee colonies. Long live the bee.
There are no live bees at this workshop.
Nic Dowse studied architecture, but prefers beekeeping. He is the founder of beekeeping kitchen/studio Honey Fingers. In the warmer months, when bees are chasing nectar, Honey Fingers is an urban beekeeping enterprise. In the cooler months, when the bees are inside eating their hard-earned honey, Honey Fingers is a collaborative studio practice.
Rachel Elliot-Jones (Melbourne) and Stephanie Poole (Zurich) are the co-founders of Many Many, an itinerant curatorial and publishing platform concerned with rituals of making and interdisciplinary design practice. Many Many publishes House Wear, an occasional publication about nomadic culture, across art, design, architecture and writing.
