Drawing Matter with Honey Fingers

  • Cam's Kiosk 1 Saint Heliers Street Abbotsford, VIC, 3067 Australia (map)

This event is now sold out.

This winter, Melbourne magazine Matters Journal is launching Drawing Matter, a monthly event series hosted in the cosy, lo-fi surrounds of Cam’s Kiosk in the Abbotsford Convent.

Combining contemplative drawing with an intimate talk, each event will host a guest speaker who is an original thinker in their field. As guests absorb the talk, they will be invited to sketch an artefact relating to the talk’s theme - it could be honeycomb, or kelp, or funghi - displayed in the centre of the room. It’s like life drawing, minus the nudity. A Q&A will follow.

The series will kick off with a talk by Nic Dowse, founder of beekeeping collective Honey Fingers. Nic will showcase some incredible honeycomb structures and discuss the parallels between modern beehive design, modernist architecture, and the impact of each on bees and humans.

Nibbles will be available to purchase before, during and after the talk. Cam’s will also be offering a special themed cocktail at each event. It helps with the drawing.
