Up to 12 participants with certified instructors. Open to those who have taken at least one walling workshop (or are certified Level 1 or higher)

This workshop will spend the day learning how to shape stones for use in an arched bridge.  Spcifically making the voussoirs (tapered stones forming the arch). Both hand and power tools will likely be demonstrated and used.

This stone shaping workshop will focus on making the stones needed for the bridge build in September.  However, these techniques can be applied to all kinds of stone shaping and walling. The assumption is that participants taking this workshop already know at least the basics of dry stone walling. This workshop will delve into stone shaping and to a much greater level of detail than workshops that focus on wall building.

Required Prerequisite Courses:

  • One day walling workshop, or 2 day walling workshop, or hold DSWA-GB certification (any level).


Register for just this workshop or take it as part of the bridge building workshop set that includes this workshop and all of the following: stone shaping workshop,  small arch workshop, bridge site prep workshop, the stone bridge tour, and the bridge building workshop!   Signing up for the set saves you $100 off the list price of taking all 5 workshop in the set independently.

Note there are 3 bridge stone shaping workshops.  They are all the same, and the bridge workshop set includes just one.  However if you would like to do additional bridge stone shaping workshops you can do that by signing up for those separately.

More information will be posted about this workshop and location soon.


Note there may be more spaces available for the bridge workshops and workshop set than shown here, we are experiencing a technical glitch on this.  If it indicates the workshop is full, give us a call at (802) 490-9607 or email [email protected] and we can get you registered if there is still space.  Also, if you register for the set, some of the confirmation emails for the workshops will have to be sent manually which may take a few days.

Bridge site - grassy farm road with old culvert which will be replaced with an arched stone bridge
