Butterfly Shrine
North Edinburgh Arts

The Butterfly Shrine was created during lockdown no 1 2020. It developed following on from a series of pollinator art workshops with primary school children at Pirniehall Primary School. This geodesic dome was designed to attract and support butterflies using wild flowers and artificial nectar held inside small ceramic dishes attached to the framework. It was also temporarily built on top of a wildflower bed planted early on during lockdown.

The artwork was open for temporary display in the Summer of 2020 and a short film made, seen here:
