  • Slate Run Living History Farm, Canal Winchester, OH
Metro Parks’ Slate Run Living Historical Farm, in Canal Winchester, OH, will offer a blade sheep shearing workshop sponsored by the ALHFAM Farmers School. The workshop is April 24th and 25th, 2015 (Fri. and Sat.) and will be taught by Joe Schott from the Landis Valley Village and Farm Museum. Each participant needs to provide a set of blade shears, ready for use. Shears cost approximately $50 if you do not already have them. Blade shearing was the primary method of shearing sheep until the end of the nineteenth century and is still practiced in some parts of the world. Participants will shear several sheep while learning and practicing proper techniques. This hands-on workshop also covers handling and moving sheep for the comfort of both the sheep and the shearer. Slate Run Living Historical Farm is located just southeast of Columbus, Ohio. Class size is limited to eight participants and the cost is $50, which includes lunches.
