ABOUT



Welcome to The Hive
The Hive encaustic studio is a working studio space shared by Karen Brown and Kim Kool. 

We will regularly run workshops , both privately and in partnership with other artists, community agencies and charitable organizations.  Check out Workshop page to learn more about what's available.
Andrea Bird and Daniel Beirne opened ‘the hive’ encaustic art school and gallery in July of 2010.
Thousands of students have been through the hive during those years, and many have gone on to teach. It has become a place of joyful creativity and community.
They are so happy to have had those years in the Alton Mill, teaching and connecting... and now pass on their best wishes to us, the new managers.
