My own Learn to Scythe course at Sedbergh, Cumbria is now fully booked but there are still opportunities for you to come on a course in July as I am teaching for the North Pennines AONB and Yorkshire Dales Millenium Trust. The meadows at Low Way Farm and Bell Sykes are both stunning wildflower meadows and a real treat to scythe.
The two day courses give you more opportunity to practise your mowing and, most importantly, time to do some hands-on peening. Peening is the part of Austrian scythes that many beginners find daunting so being able to do some while I guide you through it is very helpful and will give you the confidence to maintain your own blades after the course.
Please book directly with the relevant organisation: North Pennines AONB or Yorkshire Dales Millenium Trust
A comprehensive and practical guide to working with an Austrian scythe. Perfect if you cannot attend a course or as a reference guide following tuition.
