New News: Fall Workshops

A fall view.

The Stone Trust just passed its one year anniversary. So, we are very proud to announce two Fall Outdoor Workshops! 

Saturday-Sunday, September 17-18, 2011
Dutton Farm Road, Dummerston, Vermont 
Instructors: Andrew Pighills, Jared Flynn
Fee: $300 (Two days)
The two-day hands-on workshop is designed to teach homeowners and tradespeople the structural techniques involved in building and restoring a historic field stone wall. The outdoor classroom provides the setting for practicing proper dry stone walling methods including safety, batter, hearting, throughs, and coping. Included in the workshop will be the age-old technique of splitting stone by use of pin and feathering. Knowledge gained will prepare students for their own projects and help train their eyes to identify proper walling techniques in all walls.
