This workshop is perfect for the homeowner, landscaper, mason, or enthusiast looking to start learning about how to build dry stone walls, or to improve your skills.
Over the course of the two days each participant will build about 35 sq. ft. of wall (one side), using either round field stone, flat ledge stone, or a mixture. 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.
This workshop will be rebuilding sections of either a fieldstone wall or a quarried granite wall at the Broad View Farm Training Site. The site is prepared as an ideal learning environment. The two-day format allows time for questions about your specific projects, learning stone shaping basics, and even splitting stones using feathers and wedges.
This workshop will follow the typical two-day format. It is suited to beginners and those with previous experience. The workshop will run 9:00 am-5:00 pm each day with a 1/2 hour lunch break. This workshop is open to everyone.
If you have ever wanted to learn about building dry stone walls, or improve your skills, this is the workshop for you.
