A hands-on program covering the basics of dry stone wall building. Starting with a lecture, then a walk through the garden to view a variety of stone walls, and site preparation. Students will learn how to set up a batter frame and cut stone, and will practice laying stones to create structural integrity through interlocking placement. Following the demonstrations, students will work on a dry-stone wall and practice wall-building. The workshop will pay special attention to building a freestanding wall using field stone.
