2020 Bee Skeb Course

As part of our Basketry Festival in Derry/Londonderry in May (more details see previous post) we are also organising a straw bee skeb course by Louise Mc Lean.

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn the skill of coiled work from an award-winning teacher. Louise was awarded 1st place for her skep at both the UK National Honey Show and County Dublin Honey Show in 2018 and has since exported her skeps worldwide.

The course is scheduled for Monday 11th from 10am until 4:30. Louise has very kindly offered to demonstrate the making of the skep over the weekend and anyone who has signed up for the course can get started on theirs during the weekend.

Price: €60 per person.

Location: St Columb’s Park House Derry/Londonderryfollowing on from the Basketry Festival weekend

Applications are now open to paid-up members. A deposit of €20 secures your place(s). Please pay online via our website or send a cheque to Trish Killalea, 16 Woodthorpe, Coolnevaun, Stillorgan, Co. Dublin A94 K284
