Event A place to live 1440x900 3

Would you like to live in a web and have flies for lunch like a spider?

A Place to Live is an educational workshop that introduces children to the idea that different animals live in different ‘homes’, and need different things to survive (food, water, shelter). Designed as a presenter-led storytelling session, children will interact with the central character, Beena the bee, that is searching for the right home and will be tasked with creating a habitat that meets their new friend’s needs.
