September Waller of the Month: BENJAMIN MARON

BENJAMIN MARON (New York) — In 2002, Benjamin founded Kraftwright, dedicated to designing and constructing dry stonework throughout the Hudson Valley. He holds a Dry Stone Walling Association Level 2 Waller Certification and has been a certified instructor since 2016. He has assisted with the restoration of Opus 40, a large environmental sculpture in Saugerties, New York. When not walling or instructing Benjamin can be found trail running with his dogs.
