About the event


Instruction will address the proper use of  various masonry tools, the basics of structural masonry without mortar,  and reference design features with SketchUp. The group will collaborate  to build a dry stone feature collectively.  There will be a strong emphasis on using local stone and designing  projects according to the material at hand. No human-made materials such  as manufactured stone or gabion cages will be utilized. Discussions and  references will also include dry stone walling  and various other manifestations of dry-laid work including ovens,  fireplaces, fire pits, gates, cairns, benches, bridges and arches.
