Have you ever looked at a water molecule under a microscope? It has six sides, just like a snowflake. In this
workshop you will: i) explore the hexagonal pattern in nature; ii) reflect on our relationship to water and the
ways we are all connected; iii) learn more about how water molecules can change shape when exposed to
information such as music or words. You will design your own individual hexagons with a word of your
choosing as inspiration. Once complete, the project can culminate in a mural installation of hexagons,
assembled as a bee hive mosaic and collective art installation.
Theme: Other than Arts, the workshop incorporates elements of STEAM.
Materials: Each participant needs 1 x looseleaf paper (for folding), 1 x cardstock paper (for drawing), ruler,
pencil, eraser, sharpener, colouring pencils.
