Did you know that Australia is home to over 1,700 bee species? Our buzzing buddies are an integral part of our biodiversity, playing a vital role in pollinating our plants. In this workshop we’ll dive into their world by building biodiversity and sustainability in your backyard, learning all about native bees, their important role in pollination and how to create a bee haven!  

You’ll get the low down on Australia’s native bees, how to identify them, the co-evolution of bees with flowering plants, nesting behaviours, buzz pollination and blue-banded bees, creating a bee-friendly habitat, increasing insect biodiversity and the plight of the commercial honeybee population, as well as getting your hands dirty building a bee hotel out of recycled and suitable nest materials.

After building our AirBee&Bee’s we’ll create bee bombs for your garden, chock full of seeds they love! 

Save the bees!

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

  • All materials provided

  • Buzz and Dig handout sheet for attracting native bees to your garden.

  • Bee hotel to pop in your backyard, courtyard or balcony

  • Bee-friendly seed bombs

  • Bee-friendly seed packet


What to bring

  • Just yourself and any questions you have!

Work-Shop is a creative concept that will broaden your horizons and help you unleash your inner awesome. We provide affordable short courses in life skills and alternative art. We’ve teamed up with Australia’s brightest creative minds to share their knowledge and help teach you a new skill. From 3D printing and stencil art through to music and gardening – life skills and personal development through to cooking doughnuts and mushroom foraging, we offer a broad range of fun and creative short courses to suit our time poor lives. We will inspire you to pick up that pen, paintbrush, hammer or sewing machine and flick the switch that will kickstart a whole new way of life.

Community values lie at the heart of our project. We collaborate with local artists and industry experts to teach classes and utilise local suppliers for any materials needed. We also provide a creative environment for emerging artists to produce and sell work, and meet like minded individuals. Work-Shop will be a space for everyone, with a rotating schedule of art shows, information nights on local issues and a whole range of events and community initiatives.

I had a great time at Katrina's workshop over the week end. Katrina is an enthusiastic, welcoming and passionate instructor who gave us a chance to discover more about Australian native bees! I did find the workshop very interesting and eye opening. Looking forward to seeing them all in nature now.
