We are working in partnership with Explore York and Universities of York, Sheffield and Lancaster on a digital making and design project called Telling the bees.
The completed artwork called PolliNation will be formed from more than 300 individual hexagons, created using coloured pencils on pieces mdf. All pieces made during session time will be kept by the tutors and exhibited as a final piece in Explore York library during the autumn as part of the Telling the bees festival.

Materials are provided, but if you have coloured pencils or watercolour pencils, we would be grateful if you could bring them along to the session.
