Somerset Scythe School is here to teach and promote the use of the truly wonderful tool that is the scythe.
Quieter, more efficient and easier to use than a strimmer, the scythe is making a comeback.
Rural or urban, gardens, wildflower meadows, verges, ditches and riverbanks, graveyards, woodlands, hills and marshes: the scythe can work well anywhere and everywhere.
What's more it requires no fossil fuels, leaves no pollutants, makes (almost) no noise, it keeps you fit and it's great fun!
Age 7 to 87+ you can learn to use a scythe.
My group courses have finished for this year but I will be running private tuition sessions until the end of October.
I will be starting up again in April with a Peening Workshop for International Peening Day on Sunday the 7th April.
My first group course of 2024 is currently set to be for the weekend of 27th / 28th April. Beginners on the Saturday, Improvers on Sunday.
If you are debating whether to book some tuition this year or wait until next season just be aware that my prices will be going up in the New Year.
I run scythe courses for individuals and groups.

I am a UK distributor for scythes made by the Schröckenfux factory in Austria where they have been made since 1540. Austrian scythe blades are recognized around the world as being of the highest quality.
I have a range of blades in stock to cope with varying needs and snaths (handles) for users of almost any height.
I also stock a range of sharpening equipment and other accessories.
Please note that I am not able to send snaths by mail or courier due to package length restrictions.
Your satisfaction is my priority and I strive to provide a service I am proud of.
Please contact me to discuss your scything needs. I look forward to hearing from you. Use the SEND MESSAGE button below to email me
