Off to Somerset

Tomorrow I’m heading off on the annual pilgrimage to Somerset for the ‘Green Scythe Festival’. I’ve been attending since it started in 2005 and now as well as the mowing, it’s a place to catch up with those friends who I know and meet only through this event.

Christiane is again instructing on the ‘scythe teachers’ course on Thursday & Friday and then we’ll both be busy on Saturday with beginners instruction and my workshops on snath-making and blade repairs.

Before that though, we’re going to spend a few days in the Peak District doing some hill-walking and meeting up with Robin Wood to teach him to use a scythe and mow together.
