Scything and Spoon carving workshops at Burmieston, Perth & Kinross

Learn to scythe Scotland

Later this month I will be heading north of the border to teach some courses at the lovely Burmieston near Perth.

On Tues 22nd May there will be a one day spoon carving workshop where you can join me to learn axe and knife skills and create your own unique cooking spoon from freshly cut, green wood.

Following that, I will be teaching two scythe workshops

Wed 23rd May will be a Learn to Scythe workshop covering all the aspects of setting up, sharpening and using an Austrian scythe and mowing some of the lovely wildflower meadows being established on the smallholding.

Then on Thurs 24th May, a special improvers scythe workshop where we will look more in depth into peening as well as fine tuning your sharpening and refining your mowing technique. This should be a really interesting day and perfect if you’ve already been using your scythe for a while or want to take it further.

Please book directly with Olly or Keesje: hello@burmieston.co.uk
