Oct. 24th One-Day Workshop

Up to 16 participants. Lead Instructor: Michael Murphy, with Torbin Larson.

This workshop is an excellent introduction to dry stone walling for the homeowner, hobbyist, or entry level contractor.   Over the course of the day each participant will build about 25 sq. ft. of wall (one side), using natural round fieldstone. You will learn all the basic rules of structural walling that can be applied to any type of stone and project. This is a great hands on experience that is fun and educational for everyone.

Michael Murphy is a frequent instructor at The Stone Trust and he is a member of the Board of Directors as well. He is a Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain (DSWA) Level 2 Certified Waller and Certified Instructor. He is also a Dry Stone Conservancy (DSC) Journeyman Waller. Michael has worked extensively in Vermont and Michigan. He is an excellent instructor: after taking a workshop with Michael you will be back for more!

Torbin Larson is a DSWA Level 2 Certified Waller and Certified Instructor. He is a local stone worker, landscaper and artist at Windham Growers.
