Event description

Description

The first of six "Work Bees" as part of Bee-Decking the Meadow: a Community Eco-Art Installation

Come harvest nettles, pine needles, and grasses, and participate in the initial processing of these materials in preparation for use at WorkBees later in the month.

Join artist Jaymie Johnson in making sculptural works resembling bumblebee nests using hand-made nettle fibre rope and coiling of pine needles and wild grasses at the Brent’s Grist Mill Heritage Park Pollinator Pasture. A project inspired by the mentorship of working with artist Sharon Kallis at the Richmond Pollinator Pasture in 2016. In collaboration with BorderFree Bees and EartHand Gleaners Society, this event series is presented by University of British Columbia Okanagan, in partnership with Emily Carr University of Art + Design and the City of Kelowna.
