This two-day hands-on workshop is designed to teach the structural techniques and aesthetic considerations involved in building a dry stone wall (a wall without mortar) using stone native to our region.

  • May 25, 2019 - May 26, 2019
    9:00 am - 5:00 pm

The workshop will be an introduction to the basics of dry-jointed stone work. Wall building techniques such as using the length of each stone into the wall, and laying each stone to cover the joint below, will be explained and practiced in the construction of a freestanding, dry stone wall. Also known as a rock fence, the structure to be built will be akin to those found all across New England’s forests and fields.

This will most likely be the only time that DSWA Certification will be offered this year in Canada. It makes for a terrific opportunity to not be missed for interested masons, wallers and anyone interested in furthering their skill set and achieving a world wide recognized certification in the craft!!
