Skeps and skepmaking are the main topic here.
If you share some of my interests I'd like to hear from you.
Please use my googlemail (now gmail) address, which is:-
The GUEST BOOK posts a public comment on the Guest Book page.
You might wish to to book me for a talk to your club, or to judge your honey show or to ask for a skep.
I live in Milton Keynes, England.
No good looking for me on Facebook, Twitter or anywhere similar - I'm not on any of them.

Photo taken at a Skepmaking class at The National Honey Show, 2012 (yes, it's me)
N.B. I would like to credit the lady who took this photo but have lost her name. If you know who it is, please tell me.
My interests include :
beekeeping (I am a BBKA Judge for honey shows and have over 35 years experience with bees)
basketmaking (I make willow baskets, useful rather than arty)
skepmaking (straw beehives) especially reproductions of the past)
natural history (my B.Sc. is in Botany and Zoology)
playing the horn (and the viola, badly but improving)
languages (try me in French, German, Russian or Esperanto).
I play the horn in
The Wolverton Light Orchestra and
TheOpen University Orchestra,
both in Milton Keynes, England.
Beekeeping Events I am involved with are listed on the TALKS page
Please send more Photos for the "OTHER PEOPLE'S SKEPS" page.
Send me a photo of your skep or basket for inclusion on this page. Attach a photo file to an email.
