Love this


Beekeepers, nature lovers, honey and history lovers this is a miniature of a Style of Beehive or, skep discovered in France. It is made from straw using the traditional process of coiling straw into rope called 'lippi' work. Also, it is fixed to a base with entrances that the bees would go in and out of if it was full size.

Full size French style Beehives/skeps are available on commission.


I discovered a photograph of this unusual beehive. The beautiful style inspired me to make this model. I will be making full scale versions in the future.
