The last room to be attended to at The Beehive gets a wriggle on today. This will be our workshop/meeting/banquet/conference/sharing room, much like a Salon of the 1700’s where women were first invited to share intellectual ideas and notions amongst the interesting people of the day.
Layers of paint and wallpaper adorn these walls as you would expect from a building that dates back to the 1880’s, but none of it can be saved unfortunately. It’s fragile underneath the paint and memories of the yesteryear are retained in only these snippets you see here.
Just as care is being put back into the building as we prepare it for you to utilise, evidence of the skills of yore live beneath today’s layers.
