B e e S p a c e @Sussex Prairie Gardens Henfield RHS Partner & Onca 

 I was  invited to be artist in residence at the beautiful Sussex Prairie Gardens for 2018 and to run Beespace,  a collaborative  arts and environmental project.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 onnshow -  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   -   Glass and sound installation.  Throughout the year we had filmed the garden  and the bees and this became the film  that was shown .  


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 ( I'm  been a BSL British sign interpreter for many years)

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