Just out, The Stone Trust’s Autumn 2020 newsletter depicts the work of our professional members through stories and photos. We publish the newsletter as a member benefit. Here’s what members are reading about:
- Bryce Hollingsworth connects to British tradition, as a he recounts what he learned while walling in Ireland with Fergus Packman.
- Joe Dinwiddie presents a survey of dry stone masonry in the North American West, along with a summary of best practices and thoughts on how to ensure quality dry stone work throughout the land.
- Brian Post uses his experience progressing through the ranks of DSWA-GB certification to Master Craftsman to guide the training of wallers aspiring to Level 2 Professional Certification. He offers concise advice–drawn from his expertise as an instructor and examiner–interspersed with his own line drawings to inform the practice of all those planning to register to test in the spring or fall of 2021, or beyond.
- Our photo gallery showcases the work of a dozen or so professional members.
- We conclude with two models of professional member participation in historic preservation projects in Rhode Island (led by Rob Faraone) and Vermont (led by Michael Weitzner).
