Advanced Blade Shearing (2 Day)

Learn the ancient craft of sheep shearing with blade shears from master shearer and shepherd Andy Wear. Understand the history and theory behind shearing contextualised within modern day shepherding, before going on to learn key sheep handling and shearing techniques. This workshop is specifically focussed at smallholders and would-be shepherds who intend to shear their own sheep and therefore combines the Introduction workshop with an additional day to explore blade maintenance and sharpening together with further hands-on, supervised practice.
