Our April Medley Weekend lets you cluster what you want to learn about building with dry stone

Many people, professionals and enthusiasts alike, have asked us to cluster skill-building workshops so they can learn a lot in one trip. Our 2021 offerings respond to that request. Come in to Vermont to learn at April and July Medley Weekends. Or come in October to our first Medley Weekend in New Hampshire.

We have developed a tuition payment plan to make our program more accessible. Please contact us for information.
