Design, Invention and Innovation with Stu Anderson: The Flow Hive

Bookings are closed for this excursion.

There must be a better way...

Join us for a special conversation with beekeeper and inventor Stuart Anderson.

Stu is a second-generation beekeeper and co-inventor of the revolutionary honey extraction system, the Flow® Frame. This invention was inspired by his son Cedar who said“There must be a better way to get honey from a beehive”. Together they took on what became a ten-year journey of designing and testing. When they proved they could gently harvest honey without opening the hive, they then brought it to market via one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns in history.

Since its launch in 2015, the Flow Hive has inspired tens of thousands of new beekeepers around the world with over 75,000 Flow Hives shipped to customers in 130 countries. Stu is pleased that Flow-based beekeeping is encouraging people to have a stronger connection with their environment. Flow is now being used in boutique-commercial settings, in research and community projects, from Australia to Japan and the USA. Stu's personal account of the family’s story weaves in the challenging, the remarkable and the inspiring.

Stuart Anderson will be coming to us live from Flow HQ in northern NSW, sharing the story of the Flow hive and his ingredients for inventing in conversation with the Museum's Learning team and YOU.

Young designers and their teachers are invited to submit questions for Stuart Anderson. Please email learn@maas.museum with your question, and remember to include your name and school.
