Dry Stone Steps & Stairs

This workshop will teach everything you need to know in order to build strong and long lasting dry stone steps. Participants will divide up into pairs and work on building several sets of new stairs in the Master Feature Park. There will be variations in materials and methods. Learn about using equipment for moving large stones as well as techniques for moving large stones by hand. Layout, dimensions, sourcing stones, understanding how to set the elevations with a story pole, shaping the steps, and integrating them into walls will all be included.

It is highly recommended that those registering for this workshop take at least a 1-day walling workshop prior to this workshop.

This workshop is intended for wallers looking to take their stone work to the next level.

The workshop will run 9:00am-5:00pm with 1/2 hour lunch break. This workshop is open to everyone, but the intended audience is those with walling experience.

Detailed info will be emailed to you once you register including what to bring and directions. All tools needed are provided. Wear work clothes and boots, bring gloves, safety glasses, water, and lunch.
