Stone Wall Making with Andrew Pighills – Day 1
October 15 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
This two-day hands-on workshop is designed to teach the structural techniques and aesthetic considerations involved in building a dry stone wall (a wall without mortar) in the style of the low stone walls seen throughout the garden. The outdoor classroom provides the setting for practicing proper dry stone walling methods including safety, batter, hearting, throughs, and coping. Knowledge gained will prepare students for their own projects and help train their eyes to identify proper walling techniques in all walls. This workshop is suitable for men and women who can safely lift up to 40 lbs.
