About the event
Join us for a series of workshops in March where we will be learning about different species of bees and the important role they play in our eco system. We will be designing and building bee hotels using upcycled and pre-loved items. We will be using tools and making the best homes we can for our bees. Our bee houses will be ready after the 4 weeks to take home, just in time for the season. You'll learn the best place to put it and how to attract an array of species. These workshops are suitable for all ages. Families welcome but children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Price is per bee house not per person meaning you can share a bee house between you (max 3 people). £45 total for the 4 weeks, pre booking only. You will need to attend all 4 weeks to finish your bee house.
Class dates: Sunday 5th March Sunday 12th March Sunday 19th March Sunday 26th March
