This workshop is perfect for the artist, homeowner, landscaper, mason, or enthusiast looking to start learning about how to build dry stone walls, or to improve your skills. We will be building a permanent wall on Scott Farm  will incorporate some artistic features.  The wall will be divided up into panels with old granite curbstones set vertically.  Each panel will be built in a regional style or have artistic patterning in the courses and types of stone being used.  We will also be incorporating some small niches into the wall as well.  The image below gives a good idea of the plan.  The final designs will be determined by the stone available, and the visual statement.

This workshop will follow the typical two-day format.  It is suited to those with previous experience.  A 1 day introductory workshop or more is recommended.  The workshop will run 9:00am-5:00pm each day with a 1/2 hour lunch break.

A feature like this round niche will be incorporated into the wall as well.

 If you have ever wanted to try your hand at an artistic dry stone wall, or improve your skills, this is the workshop for you.
