About the event

Island Bee & Bee: Follow Bee! Peng Chau Tour & Workshop 

Bamboo, soil, and wood are common building materials in our daily lives. However, have you ever imagined that insects also use these natural materials to construct their nests? We invite everyone to join us to create habitats for solitary bees using these materials and, at the same time, learn about their characteristics – homes for bees and knowledge for us.

We will be visiting the 'Island Bee & Bee' installation and then making homes for our neighbours!

About the hosts:

YIWOOO.CO is a bamboo craft brand establish in 2018. Signifying “twice” in Chinese, the name is inspired by the creation process where bamboo strips have to be woven across at least twice for sturdiness. The brand commits to connecting bamboo crafts with modern city life. Works in the fields of handcraft bamboo product, workshop, spatial design and installation. The exhibition has been shown on Crafts on peel, LANDMARK and Blue bottle coffee.
