The ancient skill of 'lippi work', coiling straw to create a 'Bee-Skep' (traditional Bee-hive) dates back to Medieval times. The 'skep's were used to catch swarms and house bees.
The craft has been handed down to me from my father and is now a family legacy. The 'Skeps' can be either ornamental or practical. With or without holes for bees to travel in and out of.
Please note NEW SHIPPING TIME temporarily 5 - 6 weeks due to demand.
Different styles and sizes of skeps available please ask for details. Contemporary and traditional 'lippi' work baskets are available also, please ask for details
