On Thursday, February 4th, between 6 and 9 PM at the Kelowna Art Gallery, community members can help make sheets of handmade paper embedded with Gaillardia seed. Once made, the seed paper will be laser-cut into thousands of stylized western bumblebees to be installed on the walls of the  Kelowna Art Gallery in June 2016. While people of all ages can just drop in, we do encourage advance registration for this event:

Paper-making workshops are the first phase of For All is For Yourself, a community art project and gallery exhibition being held at the Kelowna Art Gallery from June 24 to October 14th 2016. Part of the exhibition is a wall of laser-cut bumblebees made of paper that has been created by members of the community. Gaillardia is a drought-resistant flower that bees visit in the Okanagan’s hot summer months.
