Bees create with wax in the most ingenious ways; they use the minimum of this precious resource to support the maximum amount of honey. Wax is also a large part of the glass casting process; sculptures are made first in wax then, through the lost wax process, the form is transformed in to glass. Beeswax smells deliciously of honey and is a wonderful material to work with.
This workshop is suitable for all experience levels. We will use wax taken from Sussex Prairie beehives, guiding participants in using moulds and modelling tools to cut and shape their sculpture.
Take your creation home with you or add it to the central bee comb structure that is part of the BeeSpace installation.
£50pp inclusive of materials
