Make a Sun Hive: A Hive for Natural Bee Keepers

In conjunction with other like-minded beekeepers, the Natural Beekeeping Trust develops and promotes a form of beekeeping that is holistic, bee-centred and chemical-free. Join us for an inspirational weekend to make your own Sun Hive – a natural hive which involves weaving the straw skep baskets, which are built to precise measurements. These hives are designed by German sculptor, Guenther Mancke, and represent the fruits of many years of research into the nature of the honeybee colony. At the end of the weekend you will have your own hive to take away with you.

Fully inclusive Residential single £550; shared £515 (each)

Non-residential £470 including Friday supper, Saturday lunch and supper, Sunday lunch and all refreshments

Materials included too.

Registration 4-6pm Friday; course ends with tea and departure at 4pm Sunday.

Rachel Hanney is an experienced bee keeper whose tutorial skills are unsurpassed and whose passion for the sun hive has inspired numerous beekeepers.

In association with the Natural Beekeeping Trust
