How to Build a Dry Stone Wall

February 10, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

$90

In this six hour, hands-on workshop, your class will build a dry (without concrete) stone wall. As you can imagine, it’s all about proper foundation preparation, stone choice, wall “lean” and stone placement.  We’ll start with a short theory session and then go outside to build a 500 x 1000 wall: the foundation, the structure for the walls’ incline, and proper stone placement.  We are limiting enrolment to only 8, so you’ll go home able to confidently design and implement your own dry stone wall.

Your teacher is Gisella Warmenhoven, a trained landscaper from an area in Germany where dry stone walls traditionally supported the vineyards and gardens.  Gisella is also a Feldenkrais Method and Alexander Technique practitioner and can show you proper technique for lifting and moving stones and other garden activities.  See Pain Free Gardening.

Details: Bring your lunch, tea and coffee will be provided.  Dress for a day outside including good footwear, gloves and sun protection.  If weather is too wet, you’ll receive an email on Friday 9 February. The rain off alternate day is 4 March.
