Sheryl Meech – Architecture -The Beehive
An Iconic Building, part of New Zealand’s Parliament Buildings situated in Wellington New Zealand. The Capital city an hours drive from my home. Designed in the 1960 by British Architect Sir Basil Spence an opened by Queen Elizabeth 11 in 1977.
I hand dyed the sky fabric and all the grey fabrics used on the Beehive. Commercial fabrics for the grass in the foreground. Silhouette paints were used on the stencil which was cut out from Freezer Paper. The flag was coloured using Fabrico coloured pens. French knots stitched on the Pohutukawa tree to the side of the building.
