April 8 & 9 Workshop Success

It was a busy weekend at The Stone Trust.  Over April 8&9, we had four workshops with a total of 7 instructors 58 participants!  Walling was introduced to 32 people at indoor workshops. Instructors Michael Murphy, Torben Larsen, and Michael Weitzner led participants through the fundamentals of building dry stone walls.
Outside our biggest ever retaining wall workshop ever took place, rebuilding a 28 ft long wall over 5 ft high.  This was taught by Brian Post and Benjamin Maron.  On Sunday, our new full day stone shaping curriculum was a great success.  With participants learning everything from basic hammer techniques to using power diamond saws.  Instructors, Brian Post, Seth Harris, Torben Larsen, along with  Jorden Keys from tool manufacturer Trow and Holden,  made for a great student to teacher ratio.  Check out a few of the Highlights below.  There are lots more photos and videos available here too.
