Dry Stone Walling Workshop October 24-25
This workshop will teach the basics of traditional dry stone wall building. Perfect for homeowners, contractors, landscapers, and all stone enthusiasts! The workshop will take place October 24-25 in Sandy Mush, NC on a permaculture farm about 45 min. from Asheville. The project will be to terrace a hillside to create a space for planting. There is free camping included with the $100 registration fee, and other lodging upon request. A meal plan is available for an extra $25. This workshop is perfect for beginner-intermediate stone enthusiasts, including homeowners, contractors, landscapers, and more! Below are photos from workshops we have attended in past years. Instructors will be myself (Franklin Smith) and Josh Rigell. Josh and I have both achieved a DSWA (Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain) level II certification, and are DSWA certified instructors. The farm is a perfect location for a workshop because there is endless camping and a kitchen and bathhouse for workshop attendees. With the optional meal plan we will provide a sack lunch on Saturday and a communal dinner Saturday night along with a bonfire and camaraderie. Sunday we will offer breakfast and a sack lunch.
