Make your own Bee Skep this Spring!
Skep making course with Jane Sellers at Ashford Heritage Centre, Saturday 16th March 2019 from 10.00am – 5.00pm.
Price – around €80 depending on numbers. This includes full instruction and sufficient materials (long stemmed wheat straw and rattan binding) to complete a standard size swarm skep 11”x13″.
Tools will be provided but bring scissors, and a bodkin if you have one.
Tea and Coffee will be available but please bring your own packed lunch.
Please note – skep-making is time consuming. During the course of the day you will learn how to make a skep. You might not complete it, but you will leave with the know-how and materials to finish it at home.
Please also note – there are maximum of 10 places available. Those who expressed an interest at the Honey Festival are being given first refusal so if you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any available places after that will be offered to the wider ABKA membership.
