From September 2012 until June 2013 I was working with a group from Artlink as part of their bee keeping programme, guiding them in the process of making beehives.
A group came down to the workshop every two weeks to construct the beehives. My role was to teach them how to cut the joints, dovetails and mortise and tenon, and how to construct the beehives.
The completed bee hives are now with the Edinburgh Beekeeping Society and are now home to bees making lots of lovely honey (which is the most important thing of course!)

This was a great opportunity for me to work with some great people and assist with the great work that Artlink carries out.
