Dutton Farm Road, Dummerston, VT
Instructors: Chris Tanguay, DSWA Master Craftsman certification, and Matt Carter, DSWA Advanced certification.

The two-day hands on workshop is designed to teach homeowners and tradespeople the structural techniques involved in building and restoring a historic field stone wall. 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.

NEW! One-day Indoor Workshop

Sunday, May 6, 2012, 8:30-4:30 
The Stone Trust Center, at Scott Farm, Dummerston, VT
Fee: $200 (limit 8 participants)

The Stone Trust Offers this indoor Workshop for interest and improving dry stone wallers. Unlike in an outdoor workshop, participants work in a laboratory setting: the atmosphere is more controlled (fewer bugs, no poison ivy or rain), materials are pre-constructed and hand chosen. Learning opportunities are clearer, cleaner, and offer fewer distractions. While in The Center, students can see materials in all stages and levels of construction. The indoor classed provides a focussed setting for practicing the entire array of dry stone walling techniques.
