Pyro Hive

Pyro Hive

NEW CLASS and WORKSHOP Offerings coming soon! Stay tuned, this is going to be FUN!! 

 

  This is a fun class for those beekeepers wanting to elevate their hives boxes into works of art. Many hobby beekeepers enjoy adding more ornamental and artistically creative hives to their landscapes and gardens. These hives become functional art forms and great conversational pieces. 

 

  Pyrography or pyrogravure is the art of decorating wood or other materials with burn marks resulting from the controlled application of a heated object such as a poker. It is also known as pokerwork or wood burning. The term means "writing with fire", from the Greek pur and graphos. 

 

  Pyro Hives are sustainable and last longer than painted hives, whose colors often bleach out after a few years of exposure to the elements. 

 

  If you’re a beekeeper looking for a creative outlet within your beekeeping practice this class will be for you!
