Workshops taught by Brian:
- 3.40 Stringlines & Batter Frames Workshop (1 Day, Outdoor): April 24, 2022 (Dummerston, VT)
April 24, 2022
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Proper set up and use of batter frames and string lines is a real challenge for many wallers. We continually hear from examiners that poor use of string lines is one of the biggest reasons that wallers fail certification tests. You will learn multiple ways to build frames and use string lines to improve the efficiency of your building process and quality of the walls you build. PREREQUISITE: This workshop is intended for wallers who have taken one or more prior workshops, are level 1 or higher certified, or have experience building stone walls.
