An excursion in nature combined with creative activities is an excellent idea, to release all the stress of our daily lives. Our company with the support of the Deputy Ministry of Tourism organizes experiential workshops at our apiary, on weekends and holidays. We would be very happy to meet you, to exchange views and spend a creative day! The workshops are ideal for children and adults and the aim is to give every family the opportunity to spend creative moments together! Check out below the workshops’ program and the activities each one includes.
Beeswax Candle Workshop
What would be the best activity for you and your children, just before Easter? The creation of your own candles, of course! Your own beeswax candles to be exact! In this workshop you will enjoy learning about the bees and make your own candles made from beeswax for Easter. You will have the opportunity to wrap the wick with the base of the honeycomb (from wax). Next, you will be given various Easter decorations to decorate your own candle as you wish and you take it with you for free. In addition, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a tour of our apiary and learn how to bottle honey. Moreover, you will see the “bee nest”, you will learn where and how the bee lives, and what is the difference between a bee, a queen and a drone. Finally, you will have the opportunity to play a game of knowledge related to bees and honey.
Creating food wrapping paper with beeswax
Follow the concept of circular economy into your daily routine in a clever, economical and environmentally friendly way! In this workshop we will learn how we can easily reduce the plastic wrap we use for our food (for the kids’ school sandwiches, for any leftover food, for cold cuts, fruit, etc.) and we will replace it with wrapping paper which has the beeswax as its main “ingredient”. The only things we will need are beeswax and an old cotton cloth (e.g. an old blouse). We will learn all the rest at the lab!
An experiential activity created for you and your children with an educational character and lots of creativity!
Apart from the part of the wrapping paper creation, you will have the opportunity to get to know the bee community by observing our precious friends up close and at the same time you will learn the role of each bee in the beehive, as well as their differences. Afterwards, you will have the opportunity to take a tour of our apiary and learn how to bottle honey, play an educational game related to bees and honey and see how honey is bottled live. Finally, you will get to try the types of honey we offer. And all of these for FREE!
In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to have fun, learn about bees, and make your own beeswax creations in colors of your choice. You will have the chance to wrap the wick with the base of the beeswax, and then decorate your beeswax with various ribbons available in the space. At the end of the workshop, you can take what you have made home to decorate it. The workshop is suitable for people of all ages.
In addition to this, you will have the opportunity to be guided through the spaces of our apiary and learn about the honey bottling process. At the same time, you will see the “Bee’s Nest” and learn where bees live, how they live, and the difference between worker bees, queens, and drones. Finally, you will have the chance to play an interactive game related to bees and honey.
