The Ultimate Scythe Course

The two day Improvers Scythe Masterclass is a fantastic opportunity to learn a lot more about the scythe and have some fun as well

Mowing on the Improver’s Master Class

It is the ultimate scythe course!

You will get two days packed full of knowledge and experience to help improve all aspects of your scything.

From learning how to diagnose and fix problems in your own and others mowing techniques, to in depth explorations of peening this is the place to find answers to all your scything questions and more.

It is an amazing resource of information

With three course tutors you will have access to a great breadth of knowledge. The tutors Phil Batten, Christiana Lechner and Steve Tomlin, each have many years of scything and teaching experience to share.

In addition to the main tutors there will be other members of the Scythe Association in attendance, especially on the Saturday, with opportunities for discussions on everything from hand hay making to the English scythe.

….and then there is the festival!

“Probably the most enjoyable, and authentic, country fair in all England”

This is your chance to join in with the mowing and hay making competitions should you choose, or cheer along others as they race, browse the stalls and soak up the atmosphere

The festival makes a most satisfying finish to the ultimate scythe course. For more information and booking details see this page
