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.
For further information – Overground Underground Festival Programme page 26.
For the last couple of years we have run a scything workshop with tutor Steve Tomlin and we hope to be able to continue this.
Scything with Steve Tomlin
Thursday August 6th 9.45am – 4.30pm
£80 to include all refreshments and lunch.
Under the careful guidance of Steve, you will learn to set up the Austrian scythe, before mastering basic stroke skills and posture to ensure efficient mowing techniques. It is a very satisfying & peaceful method, perfect for small areas of meadow, maybe created from leaving a lawn to grow long with wildflowers for bee pollinators.
