On a blue sky day at Broadview Farm, 16 participants learned the basic craft of dry stone wall building.
Starting with quarried material, and some boulders from the site, participants in this workshop honed their skills in breaking and splitting large stone, as well as chisel and hammer techniques for refined shaping.
Taking their skill to the next level, these participants had a fun day of learning the basics of small arch building.
Over the course of three days days, the participants did an amazing job transforming a linear heap of rocks, the common state of many neglected field walls, into a fantastic dry stone wall.
This outdoor Introductory Walling workshop was the first one held at our new location, Broadview Farm, in Mont Vernon, NH.
Through sun and rain, the participants continued to build this permanent wall -a perfect blend of skill and artistry – at Scott Farm.
