O que você fará

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.

We did this as a surprise for my girlfriend's birthday and she absolutely loved it, it's such an amazing and unique experience. We truly enjoyed my time making the mosaic and learned so much about Manchester. Amanda was the most friendly host you could ask for and we chatted to her about her experience making mosaics and also everything else you can think of. It was such a satisfying experience and I think I've found a new hobby for life! Now I just need to finish my Bee mosaic...

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.

We had a absolutely great experience with Amanda doing the bee tour of Manchester and making our mosaics. Amanda was really knowledge about it all. 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!

Surprised my friend for her birthday with this making a bee mosaic . Amanda was lovely and friendly. We started at the art gallery and then walked to the town hall and library. Amanda's local knowledge was brilliant. Had great fun making the mosaic with Amanda's guidance and help when we needed it. Lovely to meet Matt and Tara as well. Amanda went above and beyond to make ita special day. Gaynor and Trudi x
