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. Participants
must wear sturdy boots or shoes (no sneakers) and safety glasses and bring a
packed lunch and a water bottle. Sunscreen and insect repellant recommended.
