Our 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!
