From Peachtree City, Georgia and Watkins Glen, New York, from the Connecticut shoreline and both eastern and Western Massachusetts, seven people ranging in age from twenty to seventy-one came to learn how to build a freestanding dry stone wall. One man had built two walls on his property and wanted to compare his methods to the traditional method taught by the Stone Trust. All of the rest came with little to no experience of building double-face dry stone walls.
Instructors Torben Larsen and Dan Morales-Walsh made sure that people got a handle on the 5 basic principles. In the end, virtually all participants expressed confidence in their ability to apply them independently and explain concepts to a friend. What could make the workshop better? One thought: coffee. We’ve tried that and very often most of it goes to waste.
Recently someone suggested food trucks. We’ll keep in mind adding amenities as the situation allows.
Thanks to everyone for coming!
