Insects are crucial to our ecosystem. However, rapid environmental degradation has caused a major decline of their population, affecting humans and other interdependent species. In this workshop, participants will learn the important role that insects play in our ecosystems, fostering a deeper appreciation for them. Using recycled materials, participants will study and create their own six-legged animals through printed images and real insect specimens brought in by Wendy.gnahZ.
This workshop is held in collaboration with Migrant x Me, a registered social enterprise that aims to provide public education and raise awareness of the migrant worker community in Singapore. Participants will work hand-in-hand with the local migrant worker community, and exchange thoughts and experiences on how to share resources more consciously.
An artist volunteer with Migrant x Me, Wendy.gnahZ (Singapore) is a creator and scientific illustrator. Fascinated with the strange, the dead and the unseen matter in nature, she is driven to learn more about them and the role they play in our ecosystem.
