Join renowned artist and basket maker Jodie Goldring in this workshop.  You will construct your own skep with all materials supplied and then take it home with you.

Skeps are traditional hives with heritage extending to medieval times.   Although no longer appropriate for hiving bees due to the requirement for removable frames, skeps can still find a use in the modern apiary. Apart from their obvious decorative and historical interest, they make ideal containers for collecting swarms, being lightweight, breathable and giving purchase for the bees to cluster inside. If you decide to construct a flat topped skep, it can double as a handy basket for carrying beekeeping equipment.

Registration now open (places strictly limited). The club reserves the right to cancel the workshop if insufficient numbers  register.  In this event, a full refund will be provided.
