Dry stone arch demonstration with form in place

Workshop Level: 2 & 3. Lead instructor Brian Post. Open to those who have taken at least one Level 1 workshop (or are experienced wallers) . $290

This workshop will spend ½ the day learning about how to shape stones for use in dry stone walls. Participants will be introduced to a variety of stone types, and how to work with them. Both hand and power tools will be demonstrated and used. The stone shaping portion will focus on efficient practices, learning how to look at a stone and judge how to shape it, as well as proper use and care of tools.

Proper set-up and use of batter-frames and string-lines is a real challenge for many wallers. You will learn multiple ways to build and set up frames that are sturdy and functional for walls and features.

Brian Post is a DSWA Certified Advanced Level Waller, DSWA Certified Instructor, Licensed Landscape Architect and the Executive Director of The Stone Trust.

This workshop is intended for those wallers looking to take their stone work to the next level.
