Working with Secret Seed Society, the Museum of Architecture has designed four workshops aimed to teach children – and their parents and carers – how bees in the city live and show how their lifestyles are similar to those of people. Secret Seed Society’s Amy Cooper will describe the importance of bees in our ecosystem and where you can find them in London. This interactive workshop is full of experiences, games and crafting which will grow you and your child’s knowledge and appreciation for bees and their vital role in our ecosystem. The second half of the workshop is your chance to use some of your new knowledge and creative flair to make your own designer solitary bee home, to take away and hang in a tree near where you live. Materials and supplies for bee house designs are included in the ticket price. Children must be accompanied by an adult with no more than 3 children per adult.
