Certified Instructors

All workshops are taught by instructors that are certified by the Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain (DSWA).  To gain Instructor Certification one must already hold Level 2 or higher DSWA dry stone walling certification and must attend a DSWA instructor training course.  The course covers learning and teaching styles as well as dry stone wall instruction.

In 2011 The Stone Trust held the first DSWA Instructor Training course outside of Great Britain.  The Stone Trust now typically holds an instructors course every spring and is the only place outside of Great Britain where wallers can become certified instructors.
