The Hive

The Pop-up

The Robin Collective transformed a derelict shop in Leather Lane, Central London into a human-size bee hive, which the public had to 'waggle dance' into.

Complete with bee-based delights such as flowering plants, grass and artificial sunshine (Lumie SAD lamps), we succeeded in drawing attention to the decline of our humble honey bee.​

Within the hive, guests were encouraged to particpate in workshops including Build-a-Bee-Hotel, Beauty & the Bee and various craft workshops presented by Etsy UK.
