The Steps and Stairs Workshop – lots of hands-on – April 8th

The Steps and Stairs Workshop was a great success!

Master Craftsmen Instructors Michael Weitzner and Brian Post led the way in one of the most challenging workshops offered by The Stone Trust.  A full class of 8 participants learned the fundamentals of stair construction with 4 different types of stone.   Learning to move big stones was a key part of the class as well as techniques for dressing and shaping the large stones.

Benjamin Maron (DSWA Level II & Instructor) also assisted in the instruction, and Judy Rand (DSWA Level II & Instructor) volunteered to help everything run smoothly.

Here’s what participants felt were some of the strongest aspects of the workshop:

The ratio of students to instructors was great! Meant more hands-on.”

“The individual teaching and working on projects.”
