This Workshop is perfect for the homeowner, landscaper, mason, or enthusiast looking to start learning how to build dry stone walls, or to improve your skills.

Introductory participants will learn all the basics of structural walling, plus so much more, while building a straight section of free standing dry stone wall. Experienced participants will work on building a wall end, also known as a cheek end. The knowledge taught in this workshop can be applied to any type of stone and dry stone walling project.
