What do you love about nature and the world around us?

In this drop-in workshop, you’ll decorate shapes with patterns and words to help make others aware of the beauty of our environment and how we need to look after it. You’ll then learn how to fold the shapes and join them to others to form interconnected structures that will slowly grow in our Learning Studio throughout January.

Created from pieces of A4 card, the shapes are inspired by those created by native bees in their hives and what different pollens look like under a microscope.

Take part anytime between 11am and 3.30pm. Materials and instructions are provided. Suitable for all ages. Children should be supervised by an adult.

You can also create these shapes at home using our downloadable activity sheet.

This workshop and activity sheet are developed by international architect and designer Noa Haim from Collective Paper Aesthetics, who is also leading a workshop titled Be at the Hive as part of the Hive Festival at the Art Gallery of New South Wales on 13 and 14 January 2024.
