An Introduction to Dry Stone Walling
This can be taken as a one day course on the Saturday or a two day course. The day starts with an introduction to dry stone walling, looking at some walls on the farm, seeing how they are constructed and discussing the different styles of walling. The rest of the first day is spent learning the basic techniques of dry stone walling and building a piece of wall. If you are taking a two days course then the Sunday will be spent continuing to build the wall under instruction. Participants will not only learn the basic rudiments of building a dry stone wall but will also learn about the history of how and when they were built. Your tutor is a professional dry stone waller, who holds the Advanced qualification of the Stone Walling Association of Great Britain.
09:30 to 16:00 10:00 to 15:30 £85 for a one day course, £170 for two day course. If you require overnight accommodation this can be arranged at an additional cost. 01597 829298
