Cosa farete

We'll meet outside the entrance hall at Manchester Art Gallery.
The art gallery is the perfect meeting spot where we’ll spot a few bees in the gallery. I'll explain the significance of the Manchester bee, Industrial Revolution and Cottonoplois. We'll also look at the gorgeous William De Morgan Victorian tiles and Pre-Raphaelite Art.
Then we will walk to the Waterhouse Pub to pay homage to the architect Alfred Waterhouse (1830 ~1905) who designed the gothic style masterpiece that is Manchester Town Hall and the incredible bee mosaic floor.
Walking around the outside of the Town Hall, as it is being refurbished until 2024, we will walk through Library Walk. Here we can see the cotton flower mosaic floor and spot some more worker bees.
Onto "Foundation Coffee House” Whitworth Street, where the workshop will take place for you to make your bee mosaic.
All the materials will be provided for you to make your bee.
I'll guide you through the mosaic process and technique, sharing my skills and tips on how to make the best bee mosaic.
I'm really excited about welcoming you to Manchester, you're going to have the best time. It will be an experience that is unique and I know you'll love.
Other things to note
No previous experience is needed. This will be an excellent way of meeting new people if you are travelling alone. I'm looking forward to meeting you.

I highly recommend this tour. Amanda was friendly and knowledgable. We started at the Art Gallery, seeking out relevant works of art with Amanda describing the rich history of Manchester and the bees. Then a tour of the architecture hidden in broad daylight as we made a bee-line to coffee and the crafting of my very own bee mosaic. Amanda had worked hard to set up the materials and design for me to achieve my very own work of art. A wonderful experience. Thanks Amanda.

The materials that were provided were also of excellent quality meaning that we all cant wait to put the bees up in our homes! Would definitely recommend if you would like to do something slightly different in Manchester and create your own keepsake. Thanks Amanda!

Spent a lovely afternoon with spotting things, that as someone who works in town, I would never have know or spotted without Amandas insight. A really lovely introductory walk, followed by the mosaic workshop itself, which was really informative and strangely therapeutic - would highly recommend -Thanks Amanda!

Absolutely loved the class with Amanda ❤️ was a fabulous experience and we both had so much fun! It was something I really wanted to do, partner was a skeptic and it isn't his usual kind of thing to do but he also really enjoyed himself so if amanda can convert Matt into a crafty cultural lover she's done a fab job! We would recommend to anybody and everybody!
