Upcoming Dry Stone Walling Workshop

Saturday-Sunday, April 28-29th

Instructor: Andrew Pighills
Location:   Stonewell Farm, Killingworth, CT

This two-day workshop will provide a hands-on education in the structural techniques and aesthetic considerations involved in building a dry stone wall (a stone wall built without mortar) using the stone native to our region. 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.
