 Great news that  Beespace is  returning to Sussex Prairie this year with a new  artwork and a new programme !   Workshops  include  making glass and paper and for children  - Honeyland puppet show and Bee safari. Details will be available soon.


 The background to the project -  

 I was  invited to be artist in residence at the beautiful Sussex Prairie Gardens for 2018 and to run Beespace,  a collaborative Arts and enviromental project  venture with Sound installation Adam Ascsoms , workshops with Hebe Vernon morris and many other artists who contributed their time and support to make it happen.The aim was to encourage people to try new activities at the workshops whilst  capturing peoples interest  to learn more about our amazing Bees. Artworks on show ;  a 6 foot perspex cube installation, The Bee Eye Box  and glass Bee eye Viewers hidden deep within the garden.

Beespace at the end of the summer was invited to Onca gallery Brighton  -  to show a  Glass and sound installation. Throughout the year we filmed the garden bees - which was shown at Onca.


In November, Onca hosted an accessible evening panel event which was well attended  by a Deaf and hearing audience.


The  invited   panel  contributors were  from;Dora Cluttick  from Pesticide Action Networks, David Goulson from Sussex University,Lydia Heath from Onca ,  Pauline Mcbride  from Sussex Prairie and myself. Exploration of the enviromental challenges bees are facing as well as a celebrating of all things made  and achieved throughout  the project. 



Glass, Paper  Wax  and seed bomb making workshops, were run  through out the project giving access to Deaf and Hearing participants.

Seed bomb and glass workshops are still available at my  Brighton Studio.  Booking information - please contact 2mirandaellis@gmail.com  or   07878435790
