On Saturday, May 4th and Sunday, May 5th  2013, Andrew Pighills, expert stone mason, will teach a two-day, weekend long workshop on the art of dry stone wall building at Stonewell Farm in Killingworth, CT.

 Participants will learn the basic principles of wall building, from establishing foundations, to the methods of dry laid (sometimes called dry-stacked) construction and ‘hearting’ the wall. This hands-on workshop will address not only the structure and principles behind wall building but also the aesthetic considerations of balance and proportion. 

This workshop is open to participants, 18 years of age or older, of all levels of experience, however, the workshop is limited to 16 participants. You must pre-register to attend the workshop.
