Straw skep hive making course - with Bees for Development

In-person course
- - #16264

Brilliant course, really enjoyed the day. Very friendly welcome and lovely snacks and hot drinks provided throughout the day. The tutor was very good and explained the history and process of skep making very clearly. He came round the group through the day giving everyone extra help and advice. You then get to take it all away to finish. Lunch was delicious!

A comprehensive course expertly presented by a charismatic speaker. It gave me confidence to alter my beekeeping practice, and explain why, to those who prefer the industrial methods of beekeeping.

Dr Sharashkin is inspiring. He demonstrates very clearly how bees can be hived with their interests at the forefront yet still being able to share with them their honey. The deep frame hive is so logical when understanding the overwintering behaviour of the bee that it begs the question why is it not more common practice. I will be promoting this style of beekeeping from now. Excellent!
And thanks to Nicola and her team Bees for Development.

It was an excellent course. My main interest is keeping bees without treatment and here my main questions to Leo Sharashkin have been answered. Leo Sharashkin gave an entertaining and high coherent presentation which was easy to follow even if your mothertongue is not English.

The presentation will change my building of beehives and methods of beekeeping. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in alternative and sustainable beekeeping.

A well-run, highly informative weekend course, set in a very pleasant location. The enthusiastic tutors managed to put over a wealth of information in a highly digestible way...and the food was great!

A wonderful course with every opportunity to ask questions. I have come away from it with a plan on where to start with keeping bees, and even how to make the hive I want. Brilliant course I fully recommend.

A very enjoyable introduction to weaving a willow skep. Sound instructions were given with a nice balance of support and experiential learning was maintained throughout the course. Would recommend to any one interested in learning about these more traditional methods.

I attended the skep making course with my daughter and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Chris skilfully took us through the steps to the end, helping us produce 2 beautiful skeps. It was a lovely workshop with delicious food in a lovely place and good company.

Really enjoyed the course, instructions were easy to follow and there was a lot of freedom over the shape of our skeps. It was great to be able to take away the tools and materials needed to finish the skep at home.
We were well supplied with hot drinks and biscuits and lunch was excellent.
For anyone booking the course, don't go with the expectation of finishing the whole skep on the day!
