Amy Pliszka is a recent graduate of the MA ‘Textile Futures’ at Central St Martins. She has a background in fine art and art history and worked for Agnes b for 5 years. The MA ‘Textile Futures’ course extended her enthusiasm for research where re-configuring textiles as a tool to resolve real life problems, they take on a whole new dimension. Bees Beside Us is a collection of expandable living spaces designed for urban bees using natural, biodegradable materials. Amy will talk about the process of designing for the natural cycle of the bees, allowing for all of their idiosyncrasies.
