Dry Stone Walling Workshop: Trail U 1050
Dry stone walling workshop teaching proper preparation on setting up batter frames and sorting stone in NJ and nearby NY.
The NYNJ Trail Conference is excited to announce this workshop being held in partnership with The Stone Trust. Established in southern Vermont in 2010, The Stone Trust’s mission is to preserve and advance the art and craft of dry stone walling.
This dry stone walling workshop is ideal for both beginner and dry stone wallers, enthusiasts, homeowners, and contractors alike. This is a special workshop where some of the top dry stone wall building instructors in North America will be teaching the art and craft of dry stone walling on this historic site. It is a great opportunity for those in the greater metropolitan New York City area to learn about dry stone wall building without a long distance trip.
Each workshop participant will have their own section of wall to work on. Over the course of the day participants will be guided though setting foundation stones, packing hearting, and building the ‘first lift’ which is the lower half of the wall. By the end of the day we will aim to have the wall built about 1/2 way up, with through stones on the wall. On Sunday the wall building will continue. We will have some additional presentation time, but the continued focus will be on getting the wall up to completed height.
