This weekend was quite eventful. I went to a honeybee festival in Philly and got to see keepers working with a beehive up close- I have been having bee dreams since then. I heard a talk from beekeeper Jim Bobb who is working with artist Hilary Berseth to make art with the help of bees. They build a structure and the bees cover it in honeycomb. Take a look!
It’s a different way to think about using animals to help in your work. I use animals for their fiber all the time, but since they aren’t involved in making the final structure there’s a different dynamic. As for the bunnies, I think they are just glad to have less fur.
I have been making mushroom ornaments all week! They’ll be nice as Christmas ornaments or general decorations.
If you’re interested, they are for sale here on ETSY as of today.
