Bee-Decking the Meadow in Kelowna

Join artist Jaymie Johnson in making hand-made nettle fibre rope, coiled pine needles and wild grasses to create sculptural works evoking bumblebee nests.

This project at the Brent’s Grist Mill Heritage Park Pollinator Pasture was inspired by Jaymie’s work with mentoring artist Sharon Kallis on the ‘Blackberry/Butterfly’ project at the Richmond Pollinator Pasture in 2016. EartHand is pleased to partner again with Border Free Bees to bring this innovative programming to Kelowna.

In collaboration with Border Free 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.

A fibre harvest of stinging nettle for the project is happening August 4th, Eventbrite free tickets available here.
