Tonya McMullan Honey Tasting Workshop (online)
11 November 2021
18:00 - 20:00
Through tasting honey, can we begin to collectively refine our sense of smell and taste to the point where we might decode messages about the environment left to us by honey bees?
Alongside her newly commissioned scent work for TULCA, artist Tonya McMullan invites audiences in Galway to join her for an online sensory workshop tasting a variety of local honeys.
This workshop gently begins to bridge gaps between insect and human activity, and seeks to build vocabulary and understanding concerning smell and taste, as well as raise awareness around humankind’s unique relationship with honey bees.
Upon booking a place participants can then collect honey samples required for the workshop from the An Post Gallery from Friday 5 November - Thurs 11 November.
In addition to collecting samples, the artist asks that participants also bring the following to the workshop:
A jar of coffee beans (or granules)
A glass of water
A selection of spice jars from your cupboard
Some teaspoons for tasting
A pencil and a notepad
