Tutor Steve Tomlin has 10 years of mowing experience and has been teaching for the past 5 years.Courses are very popular with those who wish to learn this satisfying skill as a peaceful alternative to the noisy strimmer. The scythe will cut weeds, brambles, rushes, small scrub and grass and works in small spaces, around trees and on slopes. Mowing is a gentle non-impact exercise suitable for all ages.
We held an excellent scything workshop in July 2015 as part of the Yorkshire Dales Millenium Trust Flowers of the Dales Festival 2015 where students learnt how to use the Austrian Scythe. They practised in the field behind Broadrake beneath the slopes of Whernside with views of Ingleborough & Ribblehead Viaduct.

Tutor Adrian Wood leads workshops in Blacksmithing in many venues across the north of the country. His courses are always popular and fill up very quickly. He works on decorative blacksmithing commissions for many clients in his own forge at Hornby, Teeside when he’s not teaching others. Have a look at his website here – www.awartistblacksmiths.co.uk
You will need to wear layers of old clothing as it can be hot work and sensible shoes (not plastic). Safety glasses will be provided along with a thick apron. Mobile forges and anvils are set up so everyone can work together.
Basic blacksmithing skills will be taught to create a selection of items from key rings, curved hooks, toasting forks pokers and dragon hooks.
