We are now CLOSED for the season Reopening 1st June 2018, see you then!
B e e S p a c e is an art project being held at Sussex Prairie during the summer. It will examine the micro and macro worlds of the bee in order to gain greater understanding and empathy with this threatened species. Led by Miranda Ellis, glass sculptor, this inter-disciplinary project aims to explore the beautiful gardens through the perspective of a bee.
Hebe Vernon Morris, experienced printmaker and 3D artist will be joining forces with Miranda to offer workshops, linked to the glass making process to compliment Miranda’s sculptures in the Sussex Prairie gardens.
The will be three workshops, one in Paper, one in Wax and one in Glass. They can be attended as stand-alone workshops or all three can be taken.
Mixing 3D and printed paper, this workshop is suitable for all experience levels.
Participants will be taken through the steps of creating a simple mould, into which paper will be pressed to create an individual, three-dimensional sculpture. Instruction will also be given to make a wire frame to support your piece. Different options will be provided for paper, style and colour.
Take your creation home with you or add it to the central bee comb structure that is part of the BeeSpace installation.
