By learning to make your own beehives we gained new skills in furniture making.

Susan Harper, furniture maker graduated from the Chippendale School of Furniture in 2012. In the autumn of 2012 we used the school as our workshop to create bespoke beehives ready for the 2013 beekeeping season. Installing the beehives at the Gogarburn apiary was a landmark experience for us, and developed our relationship with beekeepers, this time with the Scottish Beekeepers Association enquiring if we would be interested in contributing to the design of their show tent at the Royal Highland Show 2014.
