relationship as a species to stone as a building material likely
predates that of any other material we use. The use of stone in
a structure reaches into our core experiences on this planet,
and to utilize these materials in a structurally superior, minimally
processed fashion is the key to creating effective dry stacked
structures. In this workshop you will learn the basics of the
tools, terminology, and structural considerations behind dry stacked
walls. After this course, you may likely be unable to stop stacking
stones until you are forced to by age, or circumstance!
The site where we will build this frame has FREE camping
featuring an outdoor kitchen, outhouse and solar shower.
Please bring your own camping gear and cooking implements.

We also request that participants sign a Waiver prior to the commencement
