Name: A Worker Bee’s Work is Never Done
Location: The Avenue, Spinningfields
Designed and decorated by: Laura-Kate Chapman.
Sponsor: The Oast House
Worker bees account for the majority of bees in a hive. They play an integral role in the maintenance and preparation of the hive to store nectar and pollen, as well as the production of honey and wax, foraging for pollen and collecting nectar. Manchester born Laura-Kate’s design is an ode to worker bees and to the many important roles they undertake across their lifespan.
Amidst the sprawling towers of Spinningfields, The Oast House is a truly curious sight. Once home to hops and kilns, this old world pub is now a stockpile of the world1s finest ales and beverages; a place for workers to indulge in deli boards, rotisseries and freshly made local produce. Owned and operated by The New World Trading Company.
