Make a traditional Bee Skep

Join skep maker, Julie LeFevre and learn the ancient craft of straw bee skep making in the beautiful, peaceful and inspirational setting of The Arc Cabin.  You will learn how to weave a traditional bee skep using natural materials.  If you are a beekeeper you may want to use it to collect swarms or as a small hive…if you are a gardener they look wonderful in amongst herbs and plants or alternatively you can make a lovely straw basket using the same techniques, for whatever purpose you wish.
