Skep Making Course

24th July 2021 @ 10:00 - 15:00

We are proposing to run a skep making course at Woodstock on Saturday 24 July. This will be run by Chris Park, an acknowledged expert. (Skeps are the straw hives widely use to keep bees before the introduction of movable frame hives.) The cost will be £30 per person plus the cost of materials (not yet known – depends on the price of straw). If you would like to attend please complete the form in the Members Area as soon as possible.


We will ensure the school community room plus toilets are available and hope to supply tea / coffee. We will only run the course if at least ten people commit to it. Non-OBKA members are welcome to attend. The course will be run on the grassed area outside the apiary itself. At this stage assume it will start mid-morning and finish by mid-afternoon. We will provide full information once we know the course is viable.
