at the Botanic gardens….
During the second and third day, we created a sculpture to host a colony of bees. The participants decided to use a felt flower bud and paint it in beeswax.
For weather protection, the felt flower bud was covered in branches and reed.
We were lucky to get a call from Arto Koljonen, a Helsinki based bee keeper, who had caught a swarm and donated the bees to our sculpture.
On Wednesday, we placed the sculpture in the trees and gave these bees a new home. This live sculpture can be visited at the arboretum in Kaisaniemi Botanic Garden.
