- Bridge Stone Shaping (3 of 3) 7/15/18
July 15, 2018
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
This workshop will spend the day learning how to shape stones for use in an arched bridge. The main priority will be making the voussoirs (tapered stones forming the arch). Both hand and power tools will likely be demonstrated and used.
This stone shaping workshop will focus on making the stones needed for the bridge build in September. However, these techniques can be applied to all kinds of stone shaping and walling. The assumption is that participants taking this workshop already know at least the basics of dry stone walling. This workshop will delve into stone shaping and to a much greater level of detail than workshops that focus on wall building.
